Treasure Island

Bill Cantrell


Years And Tears


The color of your eyes is love,
your smile, a welcome breeze.
Your hurt will stop me in my tracks
to put your heart at ease.

Your tears will summon up my own
together, they fall down.
Our covenant stands unbroken
for our love is hallowed ground.

Security you give me
while humming some forgotten song.
Request from you must all come through
before the day is gone.

My trust is placed before your feet
and there you pitch your tent.
Through all the years and all the tears
our days has well been spent.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
