Wishing you all a wonderful Fourth of July, filled with fun, your favorite summer foods, and fireworks! :) To celebrate America's birthday, here are two short poems I found.

The first is from the great Shel Silverstein:
by Shel Silverstein,
from Where the Sidewalk Ends, 1974
And the second comes from a book I remember ordering at school, through Scholastic Books, when I was about seven:
|From A Rocket in My Pocket, |
compiled by Carl Withers,
illustrated by William Wiesner, 1974
I've got a rocket
In my pocket,
I cannot stop to play.
Away it goes!
I've burnt my toes.
It's Independence Day.
Happy Fourth, one and all! :)
