Treasure Island

Bri Edwards


Allison...... [A Young Poemhunter Friend; Giggle-Girl; Personal]


Goldheart Bird is this youngster’s lovely poetic-online-name,
but someday she may be better known for her violin-playing fame.
Right now I tease her, a little bit, about her “poor”.... spelling,
but she may scoff at me, judiciously, when her career does get gelling.

She wrote a nice poem about.....the bird she loves so much.
I’m reluctant to tell her that MOST birds....... I’m not obliged to touch.
She and her “older” sister are both home-school taught;
I wonder: “Is that method of learning [at times] with pitfalls fraught? ”

I worry sometimes about Allison’s safety, and it’s NOT because of school,
but because when she’s laughing at my witty poems, she sometimes falls from stool.
But I don’t worry about her starving, or her having constipation,
‘cause she said she grabbed an apple from the fridge on her way to her workstation.

In my poem “Cassie”, I said Allison’s sister and I.... might just take a walk.
If Allison will join us, we can all play hopscotch..... if someone brings the chalk.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

just remember, you moms and dads, that, like when i was a kid, you could save money and the environment (good luck with THAT) if, instead of buying a package of giant colored chalk sticks, you just find a nice smallish rock which you (or your kid) can use to scratch the hopscotch stuff on the sidewalk. just don't let them think the rock scratches will come off of the car door paint job. :)

    Am not sure who this Giggle Girl is, maybe you are trying to advertise her poetry instead of your own? ? Fair enough, but i am not bought. I'll stick with yours thanks (Report) Reply

    OOPS! i just edited the poem. i knew i should have checked my facts before submitting it! my first submission had dog and dogs, whereas my edited version should soon appear with bird and birds. maybe i was thrown off because in her poem When i think of you she mentions furry instead of feathery. so my quick fix was just changing the two words (see above) . thank goodness! :) (Report) Reply
