Commended …

A poem by Miss8 that got her a Commended Award in The Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards

Little girl China

  
You are little girl china you sing
and hop
and play in the leaves. But
you are lonely.

You spring
and prance
          and fly.
But you know you are sad.

You  live
with animals
          on a mountaintop.
But you long for friendship.

You eat wild rice
and mushrooms.

But you long for chili.

You never get what you want.

After all, you are little girl china.
