Treasure Island

Ruth Walters

(London, U.K.)


I talk to Gregory,
but he never answers,
just looks straight ahead,

He has a little pot belly,
a rather long nose,
cute little ears
and silky hair.

I talk to Gregory
when he looks lonely
and I know lonely
in every way

so I never lay blame
when he doesn't reply
but allow him his silence.
It's just his way.

I guess he's a friend,
my Gregory bear
and though he's been stuffed
I don't really care.

    ruth, i would call this heart-warming, but then you might get suspicious of me. i enjoyed it. i sent you a separate message about one line.

    i especially liked this stanza:

    I talk to Gregory
    when he looks lonely
    and I know lonely
    in every way..........................................Gregory is lucky to have someone to keep him company! bri :)

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
