A Child's CalendarBy John Updike
A Child’s Calendar

Bang-bang! Ka-boom!
We celebrate
Our national
Independence date,

The Fourth, with
Firecrackers and
The marching of
The Legion Band.

It makes us think
Of hot dogs, fries,
and Coke to drink.

The shade is hot
The little ants
Are busy, but
Poor Fido pants.

And Tabby dozes
In a pool
Of fur she sheds
To keep her cool.
