A poem

New artwork (at last!) and and old poem for Illustration Friday.

When I was a kid, there was a cabin in Lake Arrowhead we would rent for a week or two in the summer. It was old and rustic. My room was up in the attic (with the spiders!) But it was still fun, and I remember this poem was framed on the wall up there, with a picture of a cute kid who was daydreaming under a tree or something like that. I wish I could remember exactly how it looked. The picture and the poem together were just perfect for the lazy days of summer.


  1. My mother spent summers at Lake Arrowhead (where she met my father, actually) and I spent some weeks there, too. Her family had a cabin for a while (before it burned.) and then we stayed in A-frame chalets. Thanks for the memory!

  2. Very cute. Wonderful work!

  3. This is a really sweet, happy illo! Very nice!

  4. this has a really nice feel to it.. great work!

  5. Such a perfect summer poem and the illustration accompanies it so well.


Reluctantly, I have reinstated the word verification for all comments on this blog. I don't like it any more than you do, but the rate of breakthrough spam was even more annoying. Thanks for understanding.
