Mini~Musings (2010)
by Olivia Bochicchio

(Available at Amazon.)

This chapbook contains seven gems that were written by the young poetess at a mere ten years of age. Her work is a charming return to the innocence of childhood, and that innocence mingles with a noteworthy dose of precociousness.

“The Garden”

Corn rising high,
Cabbage growing low,
Peas on the vine
And beets underground,

Tomatoes, basil,
Rosemary and catnip,
Cauliflower and more–
Just look around.

Leeks, broccoli,
Strawberries, too.
Look in the garden–
You may see a few.

It may seem
Like it’s just a garden,
But to us,
It’s much, much more.
