Debonair: A Family Reunion

tin bicycle man clinton march 28 2017

Arriving at the reunion

debonair as can be

he parks his bicycle

next to the sycamore tree


Sitting at a table

tales begin to flow

family surrounds him

his eyes begin to glow


History of the area

how the town began

tales of heroics

how a man ran


Tales of love

how each couple met

families speculated marriage

some had a bet


Lunch is served

other tales are told

each one getting taller

as the day grows old


Reunion over

the debonair man leaves

smiles on all faces

to family stories they cleave
