Bucket List

My bucket list is very long.
I want to swim with whales, scuba dive, and one day write a song.
I want to ballroom dance, in an amazing dress.
Walk down that huge stairway and really impress.
I want to go to an Italian Opera, or even a ballet.
Ride on the Orient Express, be a Queen for the day.
I want to go on safari and live out in the wild.
Eat with the natives in their village, share their lives, and their smiles.
I want to hold a baby gorilla, and a silky tiger cub.
Ride a horse on a deserted beach at sunset, with the one I love.
I want to travel to so many places, there is so much world to see.
Yes my bucket list is very long,
So I had better get busy.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
