Buried Treasure

Andrew had a pail,
A shovel and a cup.
He took them to the seaside.
What did he dig up?

Sticks and stones
And old fish bones;
A string and a hook;
Part of a book;

A piece of red rug;
A big brown bug;
The lid off a pot
And a beautiful rock;

A sheriff’s star;
The keys to a car;
A blue t-shirt;
And a gun that squirts!

The hole was getting deep.
Andrew jumped inside.
He shoveled out more sand.
What treasures did it hide?

A baby’s toy;
The shorts of a boy;
Somebody’s hair!!!!
(What’s it doing there??!!)

A starfish!!!
A dead fish….
Seaweed;
A tree seed;

Turtle eggs, clams;
The shoes of a man;
A jar full of money
That used to hold honey;

There was still lots of sand
So he dug and he dug.
What did he find?
An old coffee mug;

A golden ring with a giant stone,
The kind I think a queen would own.
A hermit crab in the shell of a snail;
A purple boat with a yellow sail;


A square of green glass;
Some stuff that was trash;
A china plate
And a latch from a gate;

A doorknob, a doll;
A very small ball;
A hammer, some nails,
And a train, but no rails;

Mom came from the house;
“It’s time to come back.
Have you found lots of things?
I brought you a sack.”

She looked down at Andrew,
Deep in the sand,
“I’ll get you a ladder,
And give you a hand!

“To dig anymore,
A new day we’ll plan.
Next time, you might find
A Chinese man.”

This made me smile! I like it very much--smooth and catchy.

What fun. I really liked this. It would fit in well with an "I Spy" Book. Good job!

These are definitely beach teasures! I think it would be cool to illustrate this using a picture with hundreds of items and you have to find all the items from this poem among them.

I love poetry for kids - especially this kind. What a great treasure hunt! Good job.

Children will identify with this poem. Loved the rhythm.
