writing for children

Feeling poetic…

Slices of Summer

by me (a.k.a Donna Earnhardt)


Ice cream cones and water sprinklers

Buzzing bees and picnic tables

Fishing, swimming, roller skating

Chasing fireflies


Surfing on the windswept ocean

Water fights and sunburned shoulders

Shucking corn and grilling burgers

Baseball, chili fries


Finding treasures in the orchard

Swinging on my grandma’s porch

Melting sunsets

Blue moon rising

  1. Warm and wonderful poem! Thank you for sharing. 🙂
    Oh, what follows is unrelated, I’m a D.C. Band fan too. Didn’t know they had a blog…


  2. Yay!!! Thank you so much, Donna (and hubby)! First, thank you for having the contest, it allowed me to practice a form I usually don’t do (I’m a rhymer, too!) and of course thank you in advance for the book!!
