Treasure Island

Liilia Talts Morrison

(August 20,1937 / Estonia)

Hiding Secrets


Secrets secrets, telling lies
secrets, secrets, tying ties
tales that pale from males with ale
landing kith and kin in jail

Secrets secrets, telling lies
secrets, secrets, tying ties
none will ever know or tell
none reveal till death does knell

Secrets secrets, telling lies
secrets, secrets, tying ties
we poor mortals are quite sure
heaven's gates will find us pure

Secrets secrets, telling lies
secrets, secrets, tying ties
we forget the good book reads
all will see our dirty deeds

Secrets secrets, telling lies
secrets, secrets, tying ties
hidden snaggles tightly knit
surely draw us to the pit.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,

For the sword outwears its sheath,
