Treasure Island

Not from Laughing


Life is the sure bondage of mortuaries,
Weeping in the still living flesh.

The thermostat of life plummeting,
While counting up the deaths day by day.

Giving precious hours getting nothing in return;
The clocks hands are not a charity,

The calendar is not a mission of mercy-
These lines are not from laughing.

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
