Cluck, cluck, cluck,
A pirate digging.
Dig, dig, dig,
Deeper in the sand.
The tree leaves swishing,
Swish, swish, swish.
Push the treasure down.
Down, down, down,
Click, cluck, click.
As he limps back to his ship.
Some comments from the selection panel:
“A playful poem that makes great use of onomatopoeia.”
“This writer is only very young, and obviously pretty talented for her age! Love that she chose a out-of-the-way artwork.”
