Treasure Island

Amy Darnbrook


Castle on the Hill


Up on the hill
Behind our house
Stands a castle
Or what's left of it

It used to be a magestic structure
But ememies came and crushed it
Like a bully crushes a sandcastle
Now it is only half there

There are lots of boulders to climb on
But it just isn't the same
As a towering, royal castle
Home to a king and queen

But maybe the people there
Did something to annoy enemies
And maybe they deserved to be crushed
Like a bully crushes a sandcastle

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
