Treasure Island

Paul Gerard Reed


Setting Off


Hands were waved and kisses blown
As the bus slowly pulled away
Chattering and excited, the happy throng
At the start of a brand new day

As their innocence drifts to adulthood
They might recall this youthful heaven
They might remember the golden days
When they were only six or seven

    Such a sweet poem. Brought me back to childhood days when I couldn't wait for those school bus doors to open and see my loving Mom's face waiting there for me to disembark. Thanks for a beautiful memory! (Report) Reply

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
