“It’s a Beautiful Day” by Layla Varty

Layla Varty (age 8)


It’s a beautiful day, it’s time to play,
you can lie in the grass or throw a pass,
you can climb a tree or just run free,
you can create a garden for fairies or go pick
some berries, you can make mud pies or chase
some flies, you can turn off PlayStation
and enjoy your vacation!
It’s a beautiful day!

from 2019 Rattle Young Poets Anthology
