"Life is like a bowl of cherries.......go eat em up!" ~Unknown


The rose blooms
And tears slip down
The wear-worn face.
No gold here;
His family can't eat.
But, in another town,
He'll find gold
And give his family
Riches untold.

I was inspired by my history lesson to write this short poem about a man in the Caifornia Gold Rush
