Treasure Island

Once Upon A Time


Once upon a time
In a house so big and wide
The family that lived there
Were so happy inside


There was mommy and daddy
Two little boys and girls
Every night they would gather
In the living room they would twirl


They danced and sang sweet songs there
How close the family was
The love was great they shared
You see they showed they cared


Remember that your family
Can be the same way too
Just trust and love each other
And share each others thoughts
Because you need your family
To communicate alot


And as you all grow older
You will always know
In times of trials and troubles
To your family you can go

    Jacqueline, the images you portray are exquisite! The actual meter could use a bit of tweaking and revision to make this one a masterpiece. Excellent work. (Report) Reply

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;
