Fourth of July

July
Fourth — laughing at
Granny’s house at dusk
Cousin and aunt join the revels
Sparklers pop and fizzle in our small hands
I write my name in burning lights
Family fun in the
Summer — Fourth of
July!

    Simplistic splendor! I was at “granny’s house” last night with my family . . . sparklers in hand. Fourth of July! It was great, and so was your wonderful poem. Thank you!
