Treasure Island

John Powers


Zephyr


Juggernaut clouds and a lake of boiling silver under a setting sun,
the veils of rain fall

a curious girl on the shore of a dream, her hair buffeted,
her arms folded and heart crossed

churned waves shatter upon the walls of the sea,
there is only the sound of fury

gales tear stones to sands and mists with a roar,
a war twixt two who are one

and the time must come when a boy must bare his soul to the sun
and the girl
her heart to the wind.

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
