Good morning and welcome to this week’s Poetry Corner featuring Vic Tomlinson! 🙂
Mardi Gras by Vic Tomlinson
is celebrated each year.
America’s very first Mardi Gras
was celebrated in Mobile, Alabama in 1703.
New Orleans has the most parades
starting in early January and culminating
on Fat Tuesday, a legal holiday in Louisiana.
There are gorgeous costumes
and dazzling floats,
operated by the Krewes.
The key colors are
purple (justice), gold (power)
and green (faith).
The Krewes toss
beads, cups, and trinkets
to the crowds.
If you’ve never been
to Mardi Gras,
it’s worth the trip.
Awesome poem, Vic! Thank you for sharing. That’s one celebration I’d love yo attend. 🙂
