Treasure Island

Almedia Knight Oliver

When Will I see Him Again

To feel your warm body next to mine every night
Or stay awake just to watch your eyes twinkling in the stars…
Or watch the sun rise in your face in delight of morning’s light
After quietness of meditative dreams and snores during the night

Or delighting in the promenade under the faded sun;
“Listening to the river of the falling rain”…looking across the
River, while being hooked on Manhattan’s skylights, and
Deprived of a rainbow and a iridescent moon

Or meshing in the luxuriant park… trailing the scented path
Where…I was overtaken by your scent and missing your presence!
Calling out your name in deep and shallow sleep…
Silent nights returning not a single echo of my cries

Oh no! To see him again, you know when…
It matter not where…
Drop me in a ocean of love; happily there,
I’ll swim or sink in the one and the same

To be with you today…
Through fades and rises;
The sun will shine each day…

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
