Treasure Island

The Silent Sword

(April 2,1997)

Ageless


In the years of our youth
I remember a tree,
A tree so young
But older than we.

A wondrous tree in the
Springtime of May.
By the lake it danced
In the wind while we played.

After some time we grew
Longer limbs,
So we climbed to the top
To see who would win.

Our studies soon mattered
More than our fun,
So we forgot of the tree
Alone in the sun.

Seasons had changed
As did our tree.
Seasons had changed
But so did we.

We came across a path as
We walked home from school.
We remembered our days
With our only crown jewel.

Every day we visited
The tree we had missed.
And under this tree
We shared our first kiss.

I can also remember the day
I proposed.
Your answer had stung me
Like a little red rose.

We had our wedding
By the lake and that tree.
And passionate love ran
Wild and free.

Today I'm old and I'm
Visiting your grave.
I'm under the tree and
Beside the waves.

Mortal we are unlike this tree.
Mortal we are unlike this tree.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
