Treasure Island

Albert Martin


Sailing The Missouri


Sweet Love
You learnt from Buddha
Close your eyes
And then you see

I'm on a boat
Sailing the Missouri
The route I'm on
Won't take me to the sea

And my sweat
Is falling on the boat
I'd like to spend
Most of my time
With you my love

And the raindrops
Are falling on the boat
They form a pool
Dirty pool
That I want to rid of

And the sky
Does cry
And up there
It seems so high
O how I wish I had wings
O how I wish I had wings
And could fly

And the river
That holds the boat
Is running underneath
It leads me back to you my love
I'm a-rowing bound to thee

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
