Florida fond farewells

Have a party, all are leaving.
Fond farewells and sad goodbyes,
pack your clothes and try not grieving.
Hug each other, do not cry.

Winter's over head north fast, five days later home at last.
Unload your over swollen car set up the kitchen and the bar.

Call your friends, tell them your near.
"Come on over, have a beer."
Same friends there are same ones here.

    http://www.amazon.com/Checking-Your-Grammar-Scholastic-Guides/dp/0590494554 This is the best simple guide to all we need to know that I have found. You can get it used for a pennie on Amazon! Rememberyou need a subject and a verb t be a sentence and end with aperiod. so line one does NOT end with a period. Have a party, all are leaving. You can but Idon't capitalize the first word of every line. Only of a sentence or proper noun, person, place or thing.
