The Treasure (poem)

Updated on October 1, 2012

One day a treasure wash up on the shore

Just one of many there to share the sand

As morning broke their day would be at hand

And nothing knew what future had in store

-

Then strangers happened to this magic land

They gathered treasures that the ocean bore

Our treasure thought that this is what it’s for

Its purpose here seemed clear to understand

-

For unknown whys the strangers passed it by

It seemed so clear that it was like the rest

Till doubt set in to cloud its clarity

-

Soft sunset for our treasure wind did sigh

It wandered through the wiles of cursed or blessed

Our treasure was then reclaimed by the sea

      "For unknown whys..." , that hurt me for the treasure being left. Now you need to tell us why it was left...even though it was reclaimed by the sea...what is going to happen? C'mon, another poem. I loved that picture! Video music is light jazzy enjoyable, never heard the song.

      As well it should be. It was brought by the sea, to be taken again by it.
