Treasure Island

(Gusdavis, Alaska)

Growing up

Remember little jack sprat.
Remember three little pigs.
Remember all those fairy tales
that seemed so real to us kids.

Remember mother goose.
Remember Cinderella going to the ball,
Remember the old lady in the shoe.
Remember Sleeping beauty eyes closed and all.

Remember growing up and out.
Remember getting rid of baby things.
Remember watching Disney.
And not singing Barney songs we used to sing.

Remember getting grow up.
Remember sleeping in big kid beds.
Remember ditching Barbie dolls,
and trying to flush their heads.

Remember going to Jr. High,
Remember how scary it seemed?
Remember getting used it,
But not to getting picked last on teams.

Remember when people had cliques,
Remember when you were not apart of one.
Remember when people started acting weird,
but with your friends you still had fun.

Remember eight-grade graduation,
Remember high school seeming tough
Remember the day you got there,
And it really wasn’t that rough.

Someday you’ll look back,
and remember doing this too.
It seems weird now but
But it depends on your attitude.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
