'Memories....The Fourth Of July'

Oh, I could feel the anticipation

On that long ago.... Hot summer day

Celebrating the "Fourth Of July"

Awaiting fireworks, in fine array





The picnic baskets were carried,

As we hunted a spot in the shade

Carefully laying the pretty table cloth

In preparation of the food ...That was made





Corn on the cob, was set to roasting

Hot dogs and hamburgers, on the grill

Mom was cutting up the melons.....

Anxiously I waited, to get my fill



Rippling waters ...looked inviting

Carrying inner-tubes as we jumped in

For a turn to float, wed be fighting...

Fond memories of those day, back then



Later ...... Sitting at the picnic table

Wed join in prayer, for the Military

Who guard our land and Independence

A heavy burden that ...They carry





Mama would continue praising God

For all that He blessed us with ..Then

We kids would be glad, when she finished

Cause then we could ..... Dig right in





But....The special part, was the evening

When the time was drawing near......

To watch all those beautiful Fireworks

Explode colorful flashes, into the air



The excitement was so escalating..........

While the band played, in the background

The heavy smell of sulfur filled the air

As we spun our sparklers...Round and round



Those were the days of celebration

When love and good cheer...Were abound

When we gave thanks for this Nation

That Our honored Forefathers had found!
