That One – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

5 Lines – Holiday Party




“At a dinner party one should eat wisely but not too well, and talk well but not too wisely.”  W. Somerset Maugham


That One

That one in ten,
before the mulled wine hit the nose,
that holiday party everyone remembers
when the spirit of generosity
touched every conversation and heart.
