Treasure Island

Unintelligible Susurration


Miss Nellie


There was a lady we all know
as the generous Miss Nellie
who gives cookies and lemonade
to anyone she encounters.

She lives at the corner
of Rale Way and Hart Road
in a house with chipping
'robin's egg' paint.

Never would anyone,
in the town of Orio,
have imagined she was the culprit
of the murder of Mister Ray
on the winter afternoon
of December 9.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
