11/13/96 - Poem by Victoria Gauci

Fallen toys from the shelf, a broken balloon,
A whistle that doesn't blow,
Mr. Potato Head has lost his hat,
Snow White has fallen in the snow,

Whiskers the kitty swallowed a mouse,
Toy soldiers search for their tank,
Baby doll Suzie cries now and then,
A penny in search of a bank,

Silly Puddy, Crayola Crayons,
Scissors and some glue to paste,
All it takes is imagination, forethought and will,
Letting nothing go to waste.

    How great that you have written so many poems. And I like that you write about the things around you. It takes a poet like you to appreciate the small things that many of us don't see or take the time to observe. Keep writing. Bob (Report) Reply
