Picnics - Poem by JOHNNY COBB

Get out of the house for a picnic
Let's find somewhere fun to eat.
Tail-gating out of the old red Jeep
Is a special family treat.

We enjoyed them when we first married.
Now we always take our little girl.
We've picnicked from Key West to Banff
Plus countries halfway 'round the world.

Nothing fancy or elaborate
Just drinks and sandwiches will do.
Park next to a field of rhododendron
For a spectacular Roan Mountain view.

Lift up a car trunk at the Grand Canyon
Or a Shenandoah hiking trail.
Enjoy flat-bread at the Four Corners
Plus picnics by covered bridges are swell.

In the shade of Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes
Or a lighthouse on Michigan's Great Lakes,
Feel the mist rising at Niagra Falls
And a memorable picnic you'll make!
