Treasure Island

Peter S. Quinn


Now I'm Going Away


Now I'm going away away
Lonesome heart along the road
I've meet my night today
And my heart’s between a load
I tell you a story
Full of sadden new and bold
There are no hearts of glory
Only those that have some gold

I have given much to time
But the dark is still thick between
Outside in it icily rime
There’s nothing much to be seen
Only love that’s gone wrong
Full of nothing to do
In my dark and lonesome song
I have tried to make up to you

Now I'll sing and go away
Fill my heart with lonesome tune
Meet my future in its gray
Nowhere to be reached anytime soon
There is love inside this deep
Full of heartbeats ticking strong
Hours gone yours to keep
Nothing more from here to long

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,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
