This little poem is for the prompt at Monday's Child #35.   We are asked to write a piece of children's poetry or prose, based on this wonderful illustration by Will Terry, and to post it for all to see!!


Oooh and aaahhh, 
alas and alack,
steady on guys,
there's no turning back!

X marks the spot
we're finally here!!
So if you were sniffling,
brush away that tear

The Wizard's map
showed us the way
to a mountain of candy,
a treat fine and dandy !!!

Hurray, this is the place
of lemon drop dreams
and enough chippy chocolate
to mess up your face.

The Wizard was right,
it's like winning the lotto.
Lucky for us,
