Wee Summer Break

The Poem Farm is on a wee summer break: pond swimming, jam making, and falling in love with sunshine and fireflies all over again.  I'll be back soon, and in the meantime, many happy poems to you!  (I do continue to post a favorite poem each day at The Poem Farm Facebook page.)

Here is a July 4 poem from The Poem Farm archives: Tonight.

Don't miss!  Laura Shovan has a beautiful and inspiring post about spirit animals over at Author Amok.  I am honored that she chose to include my "First Flight" from FOREST HAS A SONG, and want to offer many congratulations to Laura on selling her novel in verse, THE LAST FIFTH GRADE OF EMERSON ELEMENTARY, to Random House.  Fly, book, fly!

Today's Poetry Friday roundup is at My Juicy Little Universe, Heidi's place. Stop by and celebrate this great day and season with a party of poetry.

Please share a comment below if you wish.

  3. Wishing you and yours all the summer magic you can hold and dream up! xo
