Treasure Island

William Roseboro Sr.

(Alexandria, Virginia, USA)

The Candy Was Sweet


Innocently trusting, she approached the car.
This sweet little girl of nine.
O, the pity, mother never explained,
strangers can be unkind! A piece of candy, is all it took,
to get her in the car.
Now, late evening, everybody's searching!
Searching near and far! Mother couldn't hear her feeble cries!
She could only wonder, as her baby dies!
Baby's no more! Mother left behind!
The candy was sweet, but the stranger unkind!

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,
