Buried Treasure

brown ship on sea during sunset

When I was little – when I was small

With the simple things – I could have a ball

A lazy lizard,

Turmeric yellow – in the grass

A sea serpent would become

My old leather boot pirate ship

Would sail past giving him all guns

Then in euphoria

A buried treasure I would find:

A penny in mum’s potpourri

That someone left behind
