Grill a hamburger or two?
Fly the red, white, and blue?
Friends galore. What’s in store?
Perhaps you prefer a hot dog
after a morning jog? Your plans?
Chips, potato salad; what’s in the pan?
No matter. With two or more,
there’s surely to be fun galore.
As for me, rest, and relaxation.
Waving to neighbors and a word
or two in passing is mighty fine.
What are your plans this July 4th?
Grilling? Roasting marshmallows?
Watching a parade and paying
tribute to a veteran? The hammock
awaits. Time to recline. Happy 4th!
