Fourth Of July

I Love America.

 We light fireworks, revel in red, white & blue.
Picnics & people come together to celebrate our nation's & our family's independence.
We drag tables & chairs out to the lawn, platters of food, baskets of bread, cookies & cupcakes, pitchers of lemonade & lot's of ice.

We join in patriotic song, march in parades and after sunset we watch America's birthday candles light up the sky.
Marshmallows for roasting, lanterns for hunting bugs & lost shoes.
Soon there will be journeys back & forth to the house or the car with arms full of left-over's & sleeping children.
Like I said, I love America.
Happy Independence Day to you all.
