Treasure Island

Sandra Feldman


Present, Past & Future


Splendor in the Grass
All withers, nothing lasts
To and Fro, Hither and Thither,
The Present is always
Worse than the Past.

Danger always, up ahead,
Tyranny, shows it's ugly head,
Bad planning, Country bled,
Can't contain the tears,
The yesteryears of song and fun,
Are now forgotten, gone and done
What lies ahead, is no sweet song,
For now, what's right, Before was wrong!

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
