Memorial Day Weekend


Family and friends file in the room as they arrive
Laughter is shared
Tears of joy flow freely from many

I feel the warmth of family love wrap around me
We are silly and fun
But nobody cares
We're having too good a time to care

This is what Memorial Day Weekend is all about
It's about being with family
And not being afraid to actually have fun
It's about being yourself and no one else

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
