Shiny New Memories

He came home from his trip
Eyes full of shiny new memories
My son
With a week’s worth of stories
Days at the beach
And historic sights
In Washingtion D.C.
Laughing as he told me
How he and his cousin found
They could reach their arms
Through the tall black fence
To pluck blades of the greenest grass
From the White House lawn
“You should have brought some home!”  I laughed
What a memento that would be!
Carefully saved
Within a scrapbook
To forever remember
The look of those
Shiny new memories
In his eyes
