We had rain here for the Fourth of July,
But it let up for the fireworks show.
Not that the fireworks were much, I daresay,
But the plants need rain sometimes to grow.

It had been so dry around here of late---
The rain, a declaration of good,  
Of independence from drought gone away,
The thirsty animals, grasslands, wood...

And hopefully people walked down to the show,
But as I said, the fireworks were slow.

Wow, time flies - it's Feast of the Assumption Day already...

Happy Marymass!
When summer fruits are blessed, and
children so well-dressed!

Columbus Day

Columbus Day
passed without fanfare here,
without a parade.
There's no Little Italy in these towns.

Rather a shame, and
it wouldn't have been that way years ago.
But nowadays only federal and ex-federal grunts get the day off with pay,
and bank grunts without.

Christopher Columbus was a brave and fortunate man.
He may not be "PC" now, but someday he will be again,
somehow.
