Treasure Island

Roxanne Dubarry

(October 4,1954 / Seattle, Washington)

Roxy54


Is it really true? Does Roxy54 have some special for me, too?
Roxy rhymns with foxy.54 rhymns with an opened door.
Roxy is short for Roxanne. And October 4,1954 look world out cause here I am!

When I was younger grandmother used to say, 'Roxanne is as foxy as a fox' Since she is worshipping and praising God with the angels on high, I have to ask her again on the day that I die.

I never knew I would grow up to be somebody special to Jesus Christ-
really. I never knew He would love me just as I am.
But, it just happens to be true. Would I ever lie to you?

I grew up believing that I would be a failure in this life.
If you don't beleve me- just ask Jesus Christ.

During those bygone years, I really wanted to be somebody-
I wasn't very happy. And nobody else was glad to be around me.

And there is a certain somebody on this website,
who would indeed, like to see me find another hobby.
But he never gave me any other advice. And now I am
telling you is that very nice?

But what does that have to do with poetry?
I started writng poems to get me through life.
Some of them I even dedicated to Jesus Christ.

But the best was yet to be- when I started my mother
into writing poetry with me. And when she died- she took
a part of me with her! I will see her again, my poetic friends!

We wanted to share our poetry freely with friends and family.
I never dreamed at the time- I would be posting my poetic thoughts on line.

Roxy 54 is more journalizing than poetry.
But after all I gotta be me!
Love as Always,

Poet's Notes about The Poem

If people wanted to know why I use Roxy54- now they know the reason why. During my poetic life time many tears I did cry. Jesus Christ will wash away all the tear drops from my eyes.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
