  • Under The Aratiles Tree

    Up on the Aratiles tree,
    the little girl shouted to thee.
    “Red berries are now ready,
    get the basket, come and see!”

    Under the Aratiles tree,
    children played hide and seek.
    The little girl counted: "one, two, three;
    ready or not I'll seek thee!"

    Under the Aratiles tree,
    children rode their bikes so care-free!
    Under the Aratiles tree,
    The girls had a grand tea party.

    Under the Aratiles tree;
    children played Hopscotch and agreed
    to remember this day with thee;
    childhood memories full of glee.




    Note: Aratiles (a-ra-ti-les) Muntingia carabula- fast growing tree with cotton candy flavored fruit

    Lovely, imrogue, To be a little girl again is a great subject, and this is a very touching poem. One sure to draw tears of nostalgia.
    Very well done!
