Treasure Island

Lawrence S. Pertillar

(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Sunsets Come To Make Me Wish


The glow of colored sunsets,
Makes me think again...
Of places I've been,
And where tomorrow brings me.

Sunsets...
Remind me of the ways,
How a blooming can end...
From a start that began.

Those sunsets,
Come to make me wish...
For such beauty like this,
To stay until the dawning comes to lift...
The dew as Sun rises,
Clearing morning mist.

Those sunsets,
Come to make me wish...
For beauty like this,
To never go.

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 »
