Treasure Island

Edwina Reizer

(12/22/1937 / LAKEWOOD, NJ)

Earth's Tears


The skies opened and its tears did fall
and the river of tears did flow.
And mankind watched the rivers swell
and picked up oars to row.
But the strength of the watery tears
covered all in its sight
and every man cried as they watched
through the darkness of the night.

And in the morning when the sun should shine
they found it was not in the sky.
The rivers now rose inches every minute
and every mother did cry.
Babes in arms swathed in blankets wet
also felt fear inside.
Mother Earth continued her relentless tears
until all on earth had died.


And then much later, the sun did shine again.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
