Fourth of July

 

Colorful lamps and explosive vibrations 

Dominate the warm, sultry night.

Sounds of thunder prevail

The sky becomes a sparkling exhibition

Hearts are joined with the vigorous anticipation

While awaiting the annual erruption of raging showers of fire

One night, one glorious night

If for a moment of sweet splendor

Cares are whisked away by the fury of the shattering stars

 

Until all is calm again
