Memorial Day Weekend at the House

Anticipation, apprehension, guesswork
evolve into initial joy, fun,
observation, participation.
Energy flows in and out
and all about
on and on and on non-
stop. Stop is good — stop,
for awhile. Dishes, dishes,
dishes, food, food, food.
Hardly any quiet;
laughter turns to noise,
noise to cacophony,
three days of grand and simply children.
The baton signals the end of
the symphony.
Applause, appreciation, elation,
Then a short course in death
before the resurrection.
