If you leave, the island
Rests a sad face on its paws
And longs for your return,
Harkening for the oar-splash
Of your approaching boat.

If you never return,
It remembers your face
All  life  long.


Historical Note

Mutineers on the BOUNTY  had to leave the island and never return, but it stayed in their consciousness forever.
