Treasure Island

Carolyn Brunelle

(December 1946)

A Closed Door


A chapter ends;
the door
closes on the past.

Other roads lie ahead
with all new experiences;
who knows what waits
around the next corner.

But at least
it's her song to sing;
her chance to dance.

With no more clouds
in a wide open sky,
she’ll be flying high
without all the baggage.

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;
