Treasure Island

The day we met


The day we met

The first time we met was a Saturday night
I was sure that this was love at first sight
You were sitting with your friends talking and giggling
When I got up to talk to you my heart was pounding.

The first words I say to you are ‘can I buy you a drink’
Then I walked away and gave you a wink
I walk over to her with a glass that’s full
And as she sipped her drink I tell her ‘your eyes are beautiful.’

I ask her what’s your name, she says its grace
I say you know you have the most wonderful face
If you be my girl I will never leave you I’m not a traitor
And by the way way my names John Slater
.
We soon get married
Then in grace a baby was carried
We then buy a house and move in together
Because we know our love will last for ever.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
