The Treasure Hunter

He searched the waters fathoms deep
In shipwrecked craft of ancient steep
For treasure of the ship marooned
The pieces of eight and gold doubloon

And would not e'er his spirit rest
Without the galleon's treasure chest
And heavy on his mind the weight
Of gold doubloon and pieces of eight

It was his quest for years of time
This secret treasure he would find
And then one day in deep lagoon
He found the chest of gold doubloon

Then raised it up to meet the sun
This buried box of treasure won
And set it on a whitened dune
His cherished box of gold doubloon

And when the chest was opened wide
And wealth of gold doubloon he spied
His thought then turned to passion's love
Who waited in the hills above

For she would be the winner of
The treasure sought for sake of love
And she would in her patience wait
For riches found in pieces of eight

But she had long since left that place
For gold was not upon her face
The treasure lost in deeds he'd done
Was greater than the treasure won

Elizabeth, my friend -
You just amaze me with your talents and the beauty of these lovely words.

My, my !  The treasures within your mind and your heart are enough to make me feel that I've just looked inside the 'treasure chest'.

WOW, Elizabeth! Amazing! And it holds a lesson to be learned as well.

Merry Christmas!

Elizabeth (the first)

 Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!

Elizabeth,
Those that seek the gold daubloon,
Are still within their own coccoon.
The gold was always in their reach,
It was stand there right on the beach.
Exquisite poem,
Love ya

Kamla,
Not wisdom. Just don't have anything to write about
Thank you, dear
Talk soon on e-mail!

Sy
But he could not stand on the beach
For sand would thus get in his eye
He did instead dive underneath
And she then sprouted wing to fly
Just kidding
Thank you, dear poet
Liz
