Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Imagination (poem)

[ Edited ]

Hi everyone,

I like to write poems sometimes and any comments / suggestions are welcome!

 

 

Who do I see outside the window?

 

A little girl near a tree,

She looks to be five plus three,

Tricycle old, rusty and red,

Parked out by the sky blue shed.

 

Auburn brown her hair was straight,

Just like mine when I was eight,

Shades of pink and red she wore,

Pies of mud she made some more.

 

Her works of art dried by the sun,

All were "sold" except for one,

She held them in her hands to hide,

And gave it to the top of the slide.

Oh my God, I loved it! I dont usually like poetry, but I went to this one anyways because I feel like if I posted something then I would want some people to read it. And I was glad I did. I liked how you made the beats the same, and used colors alot, and the rythm was excellent! It flowed flawlessly too. The story as well, a little girl making mud pies. How delicous. ha ha ha, jk.

Re: Imagination (poem)

Hey thanks!  I'm so glad you liked it! That means a lot when the reader isn't  a big fan of poetry.

 

I appreciate your compliment! 

I wrote it during the summer and also picked a childhood memory of me and red tricycle...

 

I will look for your writing too!:smileyhappy:
