Treasure Island

Gert Strydom

(03 April 1964 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

Far in the distance a church bell rings


Far in the distance a church bell rings
while the early Sunday morning is lingering
and the moments between you and me stretch out
with the bliss that no words do know
when you cover my body and face with kisses
and the world fades away, stops for moments
even the thoughts that constantly remain in the mind
when we know the depth of true love
when you are fragile, brittle
and far past wonderful.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
