Fireworks and flags
and the Fourth of Julybring a memory to mind...
a boy of four,
and one small town parade.
It was the kind of local celebration
that everyone was part of...
the high school band, the ladies clubs,
and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Anyone who wished to,
with a patriotic costume,
could be part of the parade.
So we helped him make
a cardboard horse,
and he dressed as Paul Revere.
I see him still, so serious and small,
marching straight and proud.
Others may prefer
much more professional parades,
but I like best
those small town celebrations...
with local bands and ladies clubs,
and little boys of courage,
dressed up like Paul Revere.
never used the front door
it that way,
She's gone now, from her kitchen.
