Treasure Island

Alex Carr


Little Boy


Somewhere in another time
A little boy sits on a cliff
It's 5 or 6 and the sun is rising
His body is tired and stiff
He stares at the miles of fields
The orange and red sky
And from his eyes flow childish years
Something in him has just died
He's been sitting there cold and scared
Since the night before
When his dad got far too drunk
And kicked him to the floor
There's nothing I can do for him
I just wish that I could say
Keep your head up little boy
You'll grow up to see better days

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
