Childhood Memories

Joyful echoes burst across my mind
like fireworks in the midnight sky
on the Fourth of July,
when I remember my childhood.

Merry laughter reverberates
when I remember
the first time I tasted
Grandma's corned beef and cabbage,
and I wonder why
mine never tastes as good as her's.

Another thing Grandma could do,
which I can't,
is grow petunias.

Grandma never said much
about the day Grandpa
ask her to marry him;
perhaps it was because
I never asked--
The gold bracelet,
that Grandpa gave her,
went to my brother
and his third wife
