D[eparture] Day

D-day has come; there’ll be no more delay.

Whatever’s not packed will just have to stay.

The truck and the trailer are clean inside and out.

In ten minutes they’ll be filthy again, no doubt!

The shed is now empty; the RV basement’s full

With too much stuff for our truck to pull.

The slides are pulled in, the bicycles stowed.

When we climb aboard there’ll be overload!

We’d planned to leave half an hour ago,

But we had to linger for hugs, don’t you know.

Those hugs and good wishes speed us on our way;

More precious than fuel, and much less to pay!
