This Acrostic Telestich poem “Treasures” was composed at Cassia Drive, in the parish of St James, Barbados on September 14, 2007. In the poem, the speaker highlights the importance of national treasures in any territorial domain, all be it that the speaker uses the island of Barbados as the point of reference. But really, what can be taken from this poem is the importance of national treasures, the total wealth of any island or continent. The speaker is reminding all and sundry that it is incumbent to show great appreciation for the national heritage found in architecture, the landscape, in documents or other artefacts that are considered to be of national significance. The various types of museums dotting the landscape of Barbados and indeed in other parts of the world do hold the keys to the national treasures of any island or continent. Museums store the vast resources that cover every domain of knowledge, and forums for civil discussion and debate. The museum experience has the capacity to change learning trajectories for life in positive ways.
