Chest of Gold

She comes along with a glint in her eye I knew just what she was coming to spy I had a chest, one that was full of coins It had what she desired, surely she joins Powers beyond belief were inside this Anything you wanted you wouldn’t miss She opened the chest, looking deep inside Moving the lid over, opened it wide The golden coins all shone on her with glee Not one fell away, each one she did see With awe she played with the contents within All of the coins were gone, she had taken She proudly moved with a quick step along These coins to her, is where they did belong

    that naughty girl taking all the gold coins. I like how you gave her a glint in her eye, Russell. It goes with the gold!
