DMC: A cherita by Diane Mayr

backyard gone wild

the grass needs cutting

it is too late, now...
three young rabbits have found
their world

Click HERE to read this month's interview with Julie Fogliano. She has challenged us to stare out the window and write a poem about what we see. You might even consider writing something down every day for a week: 
At the end of the week, read through what you wrote and write your favorite bits on a separate piece of paper. I bet there will be a poem in there somewhere… see if you can find it.  – J. F.
You have until Thursday, May 31st, at 5:00 pm (EST) to join in! Post your poem on our May 2018 padlet and I will add it to the wrap-up presentation HERE. One lucky participant will win a personalized copy of Julie's stunning new picture book from Roaring Brook Press:


  1. How I love the world of this poem, Diane. Were you, by chance, visiting MY backyard?

  2. Tiny rabbits nibble here, too, Diane. I like that "It's too late now" which includes quite a lot!

  3. This is delightful what a wonderful world you captured with your word one with bunnies tumbling about :)

  4. Fun poem. Baby bunnies are so cute & fun to watch.

  5. Save the rabbits! I love this poem and its form. Thanks!

  6. Yup. Too late indeed. Those bunnies own it. Thanks for the cute poem.

  7. Lovely Diane–the bunnies will take care of it!

  8. Great cherita, Diane. Bunnies claimed their territory. Thanks, Michelle for showcasing Diane's poem and bringing the challenge to all of us.
