Olivia Bochicchio (our Little Lady of Lexicon) was born in Oklahoma in 1998 and currently lives in Illinois. Some of her favorite activities are writing poetry, playing her violin, and gardening. She also has quite a talent for predicting and explaining the weather and hopes to become a meteorologist or a veterinarian. Mini~Musings is her first collection of poetry.

Middle Island Press chapbooks by Olivia Bochicchio:

Mini~Musings (2010)

Mini~Musings: Savings Options

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.
