Treasure Island

Bradley Lester

(18-07-1966 / Western Cape, Cape Town)

Our Friendship got tested


The lashing rains stung our face
We sat together side by side
The howling winds shook our bodies
We each held on despite the tide

Our hands grasped firm and tight
Not parting from the cold
We kept each other warm
Against the storm so bold

They pelted us with stones
Stating we were wrong
We held each other tight
Our friendship grew so strong

They wanted us to walk away
And part the angry way
We kept our friendship bold an strong
To last another day

The wrath of nature was our foe
We felt like slipping by
Our friendship knew no failure
We sat, we hugged, both her and I

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
