Presidents' Day 2018
by Michael Romani

Two princesses and their daddy
Wandered off to Conner Prairie
Uncertain of what they might find
Seeking fun and to cultivate minds

Most of the living history
Would have to remain a mystery
Closed down due to rain
To argue the point would be vain

Still remarkable all the same
Plenty to see and no one to blame
Just the luck of the draw
Of a sometimes uneven straw

We'd have our day of pageantry
Our moment of moments of handed down legacy
Starting with a game of Presidential Jeopardy
That my youngest played until her victory

It turned out to be just what it was
Learning things, singing songs and just because
My youngest has dreams of great aspiration
Her love for history has become her dedication

This land is your land; this land is my land
Sung as loudly as our joy can manage to command
We found ourselves singing and clapping
But, most wonderful of all, smiling and laughing

Meeting more presidents than counted on fingers
To each one, we would talk, walk and linger
Sharing tidbits of presidential history
I watched adoring my daughters' love for their legacy

Two princesses who could not be more All-American
Both them growing older, wiser and to understand
That their nation is exceptional in its liberty
I can be no prouder of them watching them explore their legacy
