A Treasure Hunt - Monday's Child # 35

Monday's Child prompt for children's poetry or verse


All four of them stood, eyes wide with delight
as they looked at the map where an X marked the site.
There was adventure ahead and a treasure to seek
it could take an hour, a day, or even a week!
They'd find it together, how ever long it took
for they'd search and search and they'd look and look.
Until the treasure was found and shared equally by four
an adventure and friends ... who could ask for more.

You have a knack for this. I seriously think you should consider doing a children's book or the like. Not everyone has the right sensibility for it but you do. I like your choice of language and your overall vibe!

Dear Deborah,
Thank you for your kind words on my Treasure-Map-post!
I love your poem! It rhymes and it has just the right rhythm too.
If you every decide to write a children's book, let me know. Maybe I can sketch some illustrations. Or are you a painter too???

Nice to visit with you.
Best wishes,
Anna
