Add A Line Marble Poem


Recommended Posts

Thought it would be fun to get a marble poem going and anyone is welcome to contribute. You can add one or more lines but please try to rhyme.

I'll start it off:

I like marbles, old and new

Purple, pink, red and blue

There's ones with lutz and aventurine

Whose sparkle looks so very keen

I like marbles, old & new

Purple, pink, red & blue

There’s one with Lutz & Aventurine

Whose sparkle looks so very keen

Small & big & in between

All the ones in my dreams

I like ones that come in bags

Even with the old price tags

I have some nice ones

The eyes they do not hurt

Took a lot of work to get them

Because they came from the dirt

I like Pelts, they draw my eye

I like to look, I like to buy

Extra money, I’m ebay bound

To see what treasures can be found

The beat up shooters, what tales they could share

Of the kids who triumphed while in their care

Games like keepers and ringer Long ago played

Lost many a marble to the old school house maid

(Side note: I enjoyed everyone's post. I actually cried because it touched me. Each person, when writing poetry, gives something from the heart, from something they know and feel about the subject. Thank you)

a few years ago on the road ... thoughts came to us about a rumbling inside ....

" A WELL- KEPT SECRET "

some mine for diamonds,

some pan for gold,

but there's a well-kept secret

seldom told

about a youthful reflection

in a grownups dreams

of digging for marbles

in a west virgina stream

the excitement, the passion,

the thrill and the joy

of finding a " pocket marble "

meant as a toy

Carroll was his name.

But he earned little fame.

His marbles were not great sellers.

And though his business was tragic,

his marbles were magic.

I like marbles, old & new

Purple, pink, red & blue

There’s one with Lutz & Aventurine

Whose sparkle looks so very keen

Small & big & in between

All the ones in my dreams

I like ones that come in bags

Even with the old price tags

I have some nice ones

The eyes they do not hurt

Took a lot of work to get them

Because they came from the dirt

I like Pelts, they draw my eye

I like to look, I like to buy

Extra money, I’m ebay bound

To see what treasures can be found

The beat up shooters, what tales they could share

Of the kids who triumphed while in their care

Games like keepers and ringer Long ago played

Lost many a marble to the old school house maid

Oxblood’s, cateye’s, flames “n” swirl’s

Who says marbles ain’t for girls !

New or old, big or small

I love ‘em & collect them all

Jabo, Vacor “n” all the rest

German swirls are still the best.

When I see a Rainbo bright It fills me up with such delight

Then the corkscrew, with its twist is one of the fun ones on my list.

Jackson Marbles are the best,

nobody likes them and that’s are that are left!

Carroll was his name.

But he earned little fame.

His marbles were not great sellers.

And though his business was tragic,

his marbles were magic.

Especially when the lights came on

The bottle of marbles at Grand ma's house

was always a source of my attention.

She'd let me look but never play

they were her's won from year's of competition's

My aunt's and uncle's would never say

but I found out grandma was a "shooter" in her day.

Even my dad lost a few to grand ma's collection

seems they all learned one of life's lesson's.

Never think your the best around

someone else wants to wear that crown
