Secret Staircase

Secret Staircase

On this island there does lay

a secret staircase for all to play;


Where shadows fall from fortress walls

and overhead for all to hear –

thunder calls loud and clear;


Between the place bikes go for keeping

and native people once went sleeping,

find the entrance you are seeking;


Have you found the stairway yet?

If not, please search some more, but do not fret,

for one must think to break this code –

a sharp mind is all that’s owed;


Near the stairway that you seek

stands a man that does not speak;

straight and tall of iron coat,

he stares upon the boats that float;


Is this staircase real you say,

or just a bluff to pass the day….
