Parasols in the Park

Here is the special poem I wrote for the Be Your Own Artist BBQ in Peace Valley Park yesterday, Saturday, June 4, 2011.  Each child at the event received a signed copy of the poem along with a sun parasol.  Some of the children decided to decorate their parasols with paint.  It was a great day! 

Parasols in the Park

Parasols in the park
Twirling in the noon heat,
Conquering the sun's reign
Offering a quaint retreat.
Those little clouds of white
How they delight in shade.
And with a breeze take flight
In Peace Valley on brigade.
Shadows on the lake
Reminiscent of a distant time,
A picnic with tea and cake
Sandwiches of cress, cheese, and thyme.
Parasols in the park,
Umbrellas with style,
And art in motion
Basking in the sun for awhile.
