Example Poem
 
Day at the Marina
 
Warm sun
kids run
playing excitedly on expanse of green.
Teaching sister how drown wiggly worms.
Folks watch
with smiles
from shade.
 
Picnic treats
cooler filled
with drinks and potato  salad, ice;
basket holds other things as nice:
Fried chicken
potato chips
yummy dips.
 
Let’s stay
all day
is the kid’s refrain. Indefatigable they
remain.  Wish parents were that way.
Having fun
is tiring,
Is’nt it?
