       Found one of my old poems - Was about 12 then. Wrote a similar one in our local language too. Edited the order of two stanzas (2008)

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.

    dotsThe Thirsty Crowdots

    Did you know that long ago there lived a very thirsty crow
    He looked high and low, here and there but found just dry land everywhere.

    Why there was no water all over the land,
    The thristy crow could not understand.

    At last came the day he would always recall
    When he found some water, but in a jar so tall.

    He tried to reach the water again and again
    But all efforts with his beak went in vain.

    He piled some stones and to his great surprise
    The water level began to rise.

    One by one the stones he'd drop
    Till the water level reached the top.

    He drank and drank till he could drink no more
    Well, hard work always pays, you know?

      Thanks, Nicodemous for your kind and thoughtful comments on my poem "Thirsty Crow"..

    ...My mom says that I had written it when I was still younger( so I must correct the description of the poem )...unfortunately we did not record it and so, some stanzas are missing ..as this is all of it that I can recall................I'm glad that u liked it, anyway.

    I'll sure check out sum of your poetry...but when i get the time.....i havea pretty busy schedule & spend little time on this site.
    Have a good day : )

      This is an amazing philosophical story to have been written when one was just 12! You have talent galore, Megan, and this was a delightful read!

    I absolutely love the title!

      This was pretty cool for only being 12. It is a bit juvenile but show a lot of promise. I could easily imagine this (with a little polishing and tweaking) in a children's book.

    I have to say though talk about it as if it were so old. By my math it is only 2 years old. I have many poems (and some of my better works I might add) that are about as old as you if not a little older. But I am not so old I don't remember how long a year was when I was a teen. Once you hit like 20ish time no longer stands still, but races past you.
