Celebration

Nana’s generation, her children
their children, with friends of
different ages gather for
this day of celebration.

All chat over pre lunch drinks
while milling around sunny
living room deck and lawn
as children race in and
out through the crowd.

All have contributed to the
prolific banquet now consumed
at length pausing a while to
digest before starting again
on dessert, then on to luscious
sumptuous birthday cake.

So now a pleasant time of
sitting, lazing, digesting
that magnificent feast in
cheerful Autumn sun
while guitarist and flautist
entertain us with lively
traditional folk music.
