4th of July Things

Early in the morning
there are clouds
and dew
on the ground

Everything is crisp
and cool

We set out chairs
and tables
on the backyard patio
and we bring out
the new grill
and we set it alight

All my senses come alive
as I see the red
the white
and the blue

I hear the sizzling
of patties on the grill

I smell charcoal
and smoke
and meat

I taste chips
and hamburgers
and iced tea

I feel the heat
starting to rise
as the sun
peaks in the sky

We laugh and chat
and eat a hearty meal
that lasts the whole day

And at night
we hear the fireworks
as they light up the sky

They seem to scream
to yell
and shout

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!!
