Treasure Island

Randy McClave

(Ashland, Kentucky)

No Place Like Home

I have traveled by bus and plane around the globe,
I have been to the forests and the beaches sand,
I have been to Japan, Amsterdam and Scotland,
But, for me there is no place like being home.

I have eaten haggis and I have also had eel,
I have eaten grasshoppers and also other bugs,
I have even eaten oysters and snails and also slugs,
But, to me there is nothing like a home cooked meal.

When exhausted and tired I have slept in a shed,
I have also slept in a cabin and on a boat and in a tent,
I have slept in a castle where I didn’t pay rent,
But, I miss and I enjoy sleeping in my very own bed.

I have traveled with friends and I have traveled alone,
I have traveled with Elisabeth, Donna and Andy,
I have walked by myself and also with Mandy,
But, even with friends abroad there is no place like home.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
