Treasure Island

David Harris

(18 June 1945 / Bradfield, England)

A Big Kid At Heart


Some say that I am
a big kid at heart,
and maybe they could well be right.
I love my cuddly toys,
as I am six going on five.
I even go away at weekends
to play cowboys and Indians.
In my case,
it is Preachers and Indians.
Yes, it could be quite possible
I am a big kid at heart.

    I love this, David. I think it's very important to keep the little child inside
    of us to keep life just a bit warm and fuzzy! Good poem.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson
