The Bunny Rabbit has decorated her bike in red, white and blue and is heading off to the 4th of July parade in our town. The weather is good, and we plan to enjoy hamburgers with all the fixings - mushrooms, tomatoes, blue cheese, lettuce and onions are demanded by various members of the family - and red, white and blue potatoes, and homemade ice cream. So, I hope you enjoy your day too!
Fourth of July Night - Carl Sandburg
The little boat at anchor in black water sat murmuring to the tall black sky
A white sky bomb fizzed on a black line.
A rocket hissed it's red signature into the west.
Now a shower of Chinese fire alphabets,
A cry of flower pots broken in flames,
A long curve to a purple spray, three violet balloons---
Drips of seaweed tangled in gold, shimmering symbols of mixed numbers,
Tremulous arrangements of cream gold folds of a bride's wedding gown---
A few sky bombs spoke their pieces, then velvet dark.
The little boat at anchor in black water sat murmuring to the tall black sky.
