Charlotte's one day late Birthday party

In Victoria Park Salford we held a party
On the 2nd April for Charlotte who was 2
On April Fool’s Day. There were balloons
Footballs, Easter eggs and so much love.
It was cold but very sunny, she loved it.
Charlotte is not a people person per se
She likes space, walking and talking
To herself and Peppa Pig who came
To her party but did not impress her.
Just a big cartoon pig who disappeared.
She ate pizza, some cake, started yawning
We knew it was late, time to go home
I, for one, will always remember Charlotte’s
One day late, but truly great, birthday party.

A dear friend celebrated her 70th birthday on 1 April. A sincere and devoted person. This poem drew me back 68 years, before I knew her, to imagine a similar scene with a more frugal fare as it would have been in those days. Every poem has one or more lines which, for some inexplicable reason, catch my eye and stimulate my imagination......"She likes space, walking and talking". As does my friend Sheryl.

Thank you for this
