  October's Child


I long for the seaside and a pink-tinted sky
In a cottage etched from four-leaf clovers
A silent mortal waiting as time ebbs by
Just sorting life's graffiti as winter draws nigh


Singing lullabies ‘n' folk songs, watching orcas smile
Wearing sunflower dresses under buttermilk clouds
Nibbling rose petals amid lilies of the Nile
Boarding pirate vessels to drift a treacherous mile


Searching for my shadow in Pandora's secret box
Reading sand messages inked in sea-spray
Foam written mysteries; shared secrets from the bay
Lapping at the shores on any given day


Until my thoughts run dry like a thirsty barren land
And the curved blade of darkness finds my hand
You'll find my reflection under a pink sky
A silent mortal waiting --- in the sweet by and by
