Popsicles!












Several years ago, I took a wonderful poetry class taught by the very talented Heidi Roemer.  Heidi is an excellent teacher who gives lots of helpful feedback.  I'm so grateful for the lessons I learned from her. I wrote a bunch of poems during the class, but I never did anything with them.

A couple of months ago, while organizing my file cabinet, I found a folder with the poems. They had been tucked away for so long, I had forgotten about them.

I revised a few and sent them off to magazines.  One was accepted by Spider Magazine and one by Bumples Magazine.  Yay!


With it being so hot out lately, I thought it would be fun to share "Popsicles."  It was published last spring in Bumples with these cute illustrations.  

Now go grab a popsicle and head over to Heidi's place for more poetry fun!  Have a great weekend!

  4. "Popsicle" itself is such a fun word, and I like what you did with the four kids and the four flavors (or is it colors). Yum!

  6. Linda, your delightful poem reminds me of my children and how much the neighborhood children and I loved to cool down with our popsicles. Congratulations and please consider if you would like to offer your poem and maybe those illustrations to my upcoming summer gallery, "The Art of Summering."
