Treasure Island

Janice M Pickett

(Middlesex England)

17th April

Charlene's face is shrinking again
but the poor dear is still in pain
Doc says once the swelling goes away
She will have a brighter day

They have a miniature
pure bred poodle who's sweet
she's so very small
But licks my feet (Yuk!)

When she sees me
at the door
she walks on her back feet
around the floor

Then she jumps on my lap
and wants to play
This routine happens every day

Granddaughter Mikayla
runs to hide
I have to cover the puppies eyes

Then once Mikayla yells 'OK'
Puppy goes searching
this is how they play

Puppy will look everywhere
It's so funny to watch
till she finds her there

She jumps right on her
and that's our play
every morning
every day

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
