Treasure Island

margaret haig

Tell me a story,


Tell me a story, And what I want to hear,

About a king in the Bible, of Saul and his spear;

He wanted to kill David, but David spared his life,

While Saul was asleep, David took the jug, spear, to show

Saul that he was near.


Please tell me a story, Of Esther the Jewish queen,

And of uncle mordecai, and Haman who was mean;

Wicked Haman hated, the Jews, and wanted them dead,

But he got his punishment, to be hung by his head.


Tell me another story, of Jonah and the whale,

When God said 'go to Ninevah, he needed a kick in his tale;

He ran the other way, then caught a large ship,

But; when a storm blew up, but he got the flip.


Tell me one more story, before I get off to bed,

How Jesus talked to a crowd, and food they were fed;

There were 5,000 people, and only 5 loaves, and two fish,

It was a miracle of Jesus, and not just an answer to a wish.

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,
