Treasure Island

Another Day


The earth quaked, the black sky fell into the oceans

and they rose to gobble everything.

Leaving devastation and ruin in its wake.

Shamelessly, the next day dawned

Bright and fresh.

As if yesterday had never been.

So cheerful that it hurts.

The hungry empty spaces in the skies eat up the memories

Leaving it once more untainted.

I too, look up and take hope for there will surely be another day, another life.

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
