Treasure Island

Unintelligible Susurration


Happy in Misery


I am standing
in the middle of the road
surrounded by noise and chaos
but I do not know where to go.

You are sitting
in a perfect place:
on the outstretched arm
of a tree
that envelops you
with wisdom.

No one bothers you
but you seem so miserable.
The source of your unhappiness
I seem to not find.
You have it all;
what more do you desire?

I know what you mean
when you say
you are happy in your misery.
I might as well join you.

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
