Best Poem of Andrew Shiston

Come With Me To This Island In The Sea (A Villanelle)

Come with me to this Island in the sea
Tears of stone shed by ancient mountains bones
The curving shore for all good men to see

From storming seas and flooding rip tides free
This Island of white stone only Neptune owns
Come with me to this Island in the sea

Stand alone on these stark broken cliffs, that be
From pounding of the sea, the broken stones
The curving shore for all good men to see

Portland's sheltered stony bay, that's in the lee
The Island and her Pulpit Rock that groans
Come with me to this Island in the sea

Steer your ship ...
