Treasure Island

Carolyn Ford Witt

(1943 / Indiana USA)



To a little bit of something,
Just a tiny little girl.
She wants to know what love is
And have it take her for a whirl.

She is so very very young that
She can hardly-now endure
What someday she will realize
When she is more mature.

That, if you learn -right now,
In yourself you must find love,
Then our Heavenly Father
will send true love from above.

Because-if you can't First Love Yourself,
and think of You as great...
When that young man comes -into your life,
The love you give won't rate.

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
