Little Girl in a Big-Big Earth

Little Girl in a Big-Big Earth

A Poem by A sea person

Couldn't think of an appropriate genre... help please? Tried to stick with the same rhyme all the way through... probably should have picked a more versatile starting word than earth...


The rain drops fall against the tar-black earth.

I look around but there is only noone here.

I hear sounds traveling down the dark road-firth

And I ask of noone, the only one near,


“What happened?  Where’s the gay-day mirth?”


Noone whispers quiet in my ear,

“You mean the day’s sunlight or the day’s worth?”


“What small difference is there?”

I wait and wonder, with poor-patience dearth

The silence is long, did noone hear?

As I linger in vain for noone to come forth


Finally, noone says to me, “Dear,

Not just little girls get lost in the big-big Earth.”
