Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 802 (Barbara’s Pear Tree)


When Barbara was a little girl-

A pear tree, highlighted her world.

.

The farm, where she grew up was

a wonderful place-

With plenty of room to run, without ever

running out, of space.

.

Barbara remembers, without any dispute-

That the pear tree had the most

delicious fruit.

.

And, underneath, is where the four leaf

clovers grew-

Finding one, meant much luck, which

obviously, Barbara would acrue.

.

There were old trees and new ones

that sprouted, from the ground-

Hanging upside down, on an old

one, is where Barbara, as a child

could be found.

.

Memories of apple orchards, and all

the rest of the trees-

Filled with fruit, swaying to a bit, of

a breeze.

.

For Barbara, the childhood days may be

gone-

But, of course, the memories continue on.

.

A unique person, Barbara must be-

For one of those four leafed clovers, is

pressed in her old drivers ID.

.

When Barbara was a little girl-

A pear tree highlighted her world.

    This perfectly captures a part of my childhood, thank you so much! I will do a blog about it when I get time and include a link to your blog.
    I’ve never had a poem written about me before!
