On an overcast LA Memorial Day

I wondered what to give away.

We were joining some families in the park

To picnic and play till it got dark.

We sat and ate and drank together

Despite the strangely cool springtime weather

The kids had a great time running around

Instead of being indoor and device-bound.

I sifted through drawers of plastic knick-knacks

And found things we picked up many years back

I filled a cauldron with these little toys

And gave them away to the girls and boys.

I hope the toys gave the kids a smile.

Sorry, parents, to add to your junk pile!
