CIRCLE OF FRIENDS

Rosa of the flowing hair
Dances to the music
In a long yellow gown
Here in Prospect Park
Came from ‘cross the prairie
Moved into the city
Carefree on a Sunday
Stays till after dark
Rosa is a part

Of a large circle
On the picnic blanket
It’s a large circle
You’re invited to the banquet
Of a large circle of friends.

Katy’s in a paperback
Written by her cousin
One of many characters
In a new memoir
About life in the country
She’s got several copies
Would you like to buy one?
That Katy’s pretty smart
She’s another part

Of a large circle
On the picnic blanket
It’s a large circle
You’re invited to the banquet
Of a large circle of friends.

Kendra with her new tattoo,
Polly with her baby,
Tommy with his puppies,
Trade guacamole recipes
Wanda’s here and Charlie,
But Jennifer is missing
New arrivals, arms spread wide,
Cheeks upturned for kissing.

Shirra who is newly blonde
And looks like Marilyn
Ready for her future
Of more fun to start
Loves them all completely
Loves their dogs and babies
And is loved so sweetly
And deeply from their hearts
Cuz Shirra is part

Of a large circle
On the picnic blanket
It’s a large circle
You’re invited to the banquet
Of a large circle of friends.
