Happy, bouncy rhythm. I can just picture Aunt Doris strutting in. Fun.

What a fun reunion with all the folk and the food this was... I wonder if the 85th reunion will be as good? Nice work and a lot of fun are in this.

Very cute! I liked the line with the two teens "Belle and Barbie" That made me giggle! ^_^
Great stuff! I loved the flow and rhythm of this wonderful piece. So many people and so much food made it sound just like a church potluck dinner. I loved the stanza In each person’s hands is a dish for the dinner.
There’s no one today who will leave this place thinner.

You done good Catlin :- )
This poem was very upbeat and fun. I tend to prefer poems like this compared to the more serious ones. I really enjoyed your lighthearted offering this week. :)

Catrina -- Don't you love family reunions? :) This is total fun. I love the "In each person’s hands is a dish for the dinner. -- There’s no one today who will leave this place thinner." I had a great time meeting all your relatives here. :) and am looking forward to your sequel "The eight-fifth annual Bancroft reunion. :)
