Treasure Island

Nero CaroZiv


As I gaze upon


As I gaze upon her rose-wreathed locks of hair,
And watch her beguiling joyful smile;
It seems as I have drunk the very air
Her breath perfumes the long while:

And as I wake upon her gifted flattering line,
That same wild and witching lay,
I can swear my heart is as the one shrine,
That only one which owns her lovely sway.

Oh well her cold indifference upon me sets at last
I take heed and mark her scornful cheek
The eye averted as she passed,
And that spoke more than words could speak.

And yes, now by all the bitter tears
That I have shed for her in love prime
The racking doubts, the burning fears, —
Avenged they well may be by the eternal healer, time

Yet the nights passed in sleepless gnawing care,
The days that followed were days of endless woe;
All that she taught my torment heart to bear,
All that herself may mock since she never does know.

Frustration, desperation I would wish sometimes to see myself laid
Within an early remote tomb;
And yet I know I should forget how I was betrayed,
And stop weeping for my doom:

But this is a never lasting trend,
To carry on; live and love in vain,
Oh my wrung, tattered heart, be you content,
How long can you live and feed upon your pain.

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
