Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Thank You


Applying for a job, filling out an application -
waiting to be notified whether you've made the
cut is somewhat easy.

What follows is a little harder!

Being called for an interview can be nerve-
racking - nervousness of the unknown it's claimed.
(Especially when a test is involved) .

Then a second interview is made - harder questions
asked - another panel.

Waiting begins for a while, soon enough a position
is offered - papers signed - fingerprints taken.

Another wait for all information to be gathered in.

Thank you notes sent out with much appreciation for
everyone involved in the difficult decision-making.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Always moving up the ladder and having to go through this process was nerve-racking at times, but always worth the trouble. Writing thank you notes always assured me that I would be remembered.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
