Ballerina With Fins


Childish Curiosity


Little girl
pink frock,
touches Death:
a morbid
old man,
ever so
lightly
with the
wondering sparkling
wand of
infantile
curiosity.

    Yes, death would certainly be a curiosity to the young, hopefully they keep that burried in their minds and don't act upon it. Excellent poem, Ballerina With Fins---Melvina (Report) Reply

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
