Treasure Island

scarlette Phoenix

(1987 March 25 / Cape Town)

I'm the Girl


I'm the girl
That doesn't like mornings,
Only showers at night
It's so hot, it's scalding

I'm the girl
That likes butterflies and fairies
Chocolates and ice-cream
But doesn't like berries

I'm the girl
Who says she has to tinkle
When she needs the ladies
And likes to be fickle

I'm the girl
That loves to read and write
Doesn't like makeup
And always puts up a fight

I'm the girl
Whose imagination runs wild
Likes to try most things
Scary or mild

I'm the girl
Who writes poems in the shower
Then forgets them
In less than an hour

I'm the girl
That wrote this twice
Yesterday it was great
Today it's just nice

    Really, what spice! ! ! !
    Loved it,
    Today, just as nice
    Are you really like that? ? ? If so, very human, very interesting, a bit excentric perhaps? (Report) Reply

    I love this piece! I write one just like it every season each year. It's so cool to see yourself change. I have a real affinity for these types of poems in my heart. Loved reading about you, and it was a charming poem. (Report) Reply

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
