Treasure Island

Vera Sidhwa


Soft


I drank soft water.
Then some soft orange juice.
I liked them both.

I ate soft ice-cream,
Then soft vanilla cake,
That some cook did bake.

I smelled the soft petal,
Of a rose,
It's sweet aroma delighted,
My nose.

I held you one day,
Oh soft baby of a kind.
The baby in the image of my mind.

And then, oh softest baby,
You came out into this world,
And you softened it with your,
Baby sweetness,
Your soft baby charm.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
