I spy this 4th of July. . .
little sweet cakes with stripes and stars
a happy girl on the monkey bars
a hero's shield for protection
grilled to perfection!
a friendly dinosaur of glistening green
a silvery star with a shiny sheen
a watery friend who will take you for a ride
a kid who thoroughly loves the slide
a cheerful face painter with a beachy sun hat
and a die hard volleyball player whose name is Matt.
Happy Birthday, America.
