Picnic Plans And Old Cans
When we got together
At those family picnics,
It seems so vivid like yesterday,
That beautiful park came alive
With laughter and games.
No one was late or ever missing,
From the littlest to the oldest
Members of the family.
Even the invited guests
Staked their claims.
We played endless Volleyball
And that all time favorite,kick the can.
The three legged sack race
Was always in our Annual picnic plan...
We sat under the lovely old trees
To enjoy cuisine at it's very best.
Content in the summer sunshine
Exhausted and with evening approaching,
We turned our attention to the west.
The beautiful sunset
We stood there together all joining hands
That was so many years ago.
The family has scattered to far away lands.
It all ended our fine picnic plans...
The sunsets go on
And memories remain
A tear falls for I know
We'll never share those times again..
For Deeny's challenge.
