Treasure Island

Rhonda Baker


Easter day '09


It was a bubbly spring day, with the sun shining down
Daffodils and hyacinths sprouting from the ground
Children dressed in a spectrum of color, that brought joy to the heart
As across the lawns they'd run and play; one pushing a cart
All on a hunt for treasure, they searched high and low
I stood there taking in the scene, like Edgar Allen Poe
Taking a mental picture, to last for all of time
Writing it on paper, in a short poetic rhyme

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
