NaPoWriMo: Shafer April 14th PM

Good Night Parents

At the rehearsal dinner last night,
it was the parents I worried about.

With everyone so full of emotion,
the fragile fifty-year-olds
concerned themselves; that's all.

The early years and the later years
seem so filled with reckless buoyance:

good night, parents, and thanks
for neither being young nor old.
