Treasure Island

Scarlett Treat

(1941 / Jug Fork, Mississippi)

Birth, Marriage, Obituaries And Newspaper Headlines


Our lives may be
Ever so commonplace
To others, but not ourselves!
For there, as the story unfolds,
We are the STARS!

Someone may note
That we were born,
Or that we wed,
Or that we died...
But not so I! !

Why the day
I was born,
The day I wed
My own true love,
And the day
I die.....
I MADE HEADLINES! !

    A star you are indeed. Being an avid amateur genealogist, I can tell you that all that documentation will make some future family historian very happy. What will make them even happier is getting to read all these wonderful poems that show beyond doubt that a vital soul made a true mark on the world. (Report) Reply

    yes, dear, i couldn't agree more. Wasn't it Mark Twain who said something about the best biographer being the one living the life?

    Dates and stuff...all stuff and nonsense...we are made of stardust and love. The only important thing is that we have loved and that we were loved.

    Well, of course we have to blow our own trumpet, so to speak, no one else will do it for us will they. I don't mind the papers either as long as they get their story right. Ha! I liked this one enormously.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX (Report) Reply

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
