Treasure Island

Beating Tree

(august 16 1995)

Across the sea


Across the sea is where I will be.
I wonder what awaits me, oh wonders that are heavenly.
The gaze of maidens that hold beauty unknown to me.
The end of a scythe, that death brings secretly.
The food of angels, the delights of the devil.
The riches of a king, The poverty of a stray dog.
Across the sea is where I will be.
I wonder what awaits me, oh wonders that are heavenly.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
