Poem from Jeannie

The visit
My friends they came to visit…
Just the other day…
We talked about a lot things…
There was many things to say…
We went outside into the yard…
A little vault was there…
It was very cold inside the vault…
Too cold for us, I swear…
Becca tried to teach me…
How to access my poetry page…
But shucks it just did not sink in…
I blame it on my AGE…
We gave up on that real quick…
So we went back inside…
Until Steven stood up and said…
“Becca I guess it’s time we start the drive”…
We stepped out front onto the lawn…
When a mushroom cloud appeared…
Spewing high into the air…
Then it disappeared…
A ball of fire lit up the night…
From that factory down the street…
It burned so long, and got so close…
We could really feel the heat…
Thankfully a little luck…
Had fallen on our side…
The fire stopped just short of us…
And they took it right in stride…
They jumped into their car just then…
And headed down the street…
I watched the car as it disappeared…
It was really bittersweet…
To Steven and Becca!
