Treasure Island

Bianca N/A


White Turtle


The huge white turtle cruised through the water so clear
Searching longingly for lunch
Two turquoise long tailed fish
Rushing forward
Catching bubbles in her shell
Squinting in the shimmering sun
Eagerly chasing
Fast and sifted
Finally gulping down the prey
Slipping, sliding down her throat
Rough skin hard and strong
Striding in the water proud
Tired and exhausted
Floating, soaking up the sun
She is resting.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
