Sally Forth


I like holiday crowds.
I like seeing everyone out and celebrating.
I like seeing everyone getting
      into the spirit of the season.
It’s exciting—
All the hustle and bustle.

I knew I needed a happy poem today. I found one, where else, in the comics section.  The comic strip is named “Sally Forth”. Sally Forth is the lead character in the strip, but the words “sally forth” also mean “saunter out.”  The pun was cheering.  And I do like find the crowds at the mall during the holidays cheering as long as I don’t have a lot of shopping to do.
