Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Young Grown-Up


Fishing, all important, using Daddy's lure.
Trying out being a grown-up, and not knowing the score.

Wanting to know what being grown up is all about, yet
not searching for it very far.

Because casting out his worm on a line, has become a
game upon his mind.

Taking notice of everything in sight, glad to be a child,
it's his favorite right.

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
