|Childhood memories of a mid-summer holiday.|
Small Town 4th of July people arrive as though by lot and along the curb lines form-- for their trying to find that perfect spot before it gets to warm down the street the excitement grows as the festivities get set to begin-- but still there's time before the show to chat with neighbors and old friends for today's a great day to celebrate with a grand old style parade-- of floats and bands that are all first rate a day of memories made soon sounds of music fill the air when marching bands pass by-- flags snap and ripple without a care all are proudly held on high after the parade has come and gone there's still more time for fun-- special games are planned for everyone for a day hardly begun then picnic baskets filled to the seam ready and waiting for folks to eat-- and hand turned freezers of ice cream make a super summer treat and when the evening comes to past really the best time of all-- loud crashes as giant fireworks flash and sparkles gently fall then the day is all to quickly done as darkness fills the sky-- but its a fitting end for special fun on a small town Fourth of July by paul f. johnson Tweet
