Treasure Island

Carolyn Brunelle

(December 1946)

A Dream Come True


You sweat and worry
About making the grade;
If you can get this one done
You’ve got it made.
Fears and self doubts
Always creep about
Disturbing your dreams;
A journey it seems
With no end.
But this is your challenge;
Your choice
And yours alone.
You must stand prepared
Ready to make the call;
Pay the piper his due
Lest you stumble and fall.
It is ‘your’ dream after all;
You must carry its burdens
If you seek its rewards.

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
