Going to Church, dressed in your best Reciting your catechism, that was a test! Meatballs frying on a Sunday morn, Bread dipped in sauce from the loaf that was torn. Waiting for the family to come and sit Around the big table, yes--we all could fit! Antipasti, spaghetti, gravy or sauce , and wine By the end of the meal we were all feeling fine! The ladies cleaned up, while the kids play outside And all the men sat back, bursting with pride. Then, time for the coffee, pastries, fruit and nuts How we loosened our belts to relieve our guts! Soon, came more relatives, one by one To visit, show respect, and add to the fun. They pinched your cheek, till you thought it would break But so much love was mixed with that ache! And so the day passed, as we bonded galore Wonderful memories, with us evermore!
Save the date...March 27
