At the party they all sat.
Jane, Joe, Judy, John, Josh, Pat,
Amy, Angel, Freddie, Frank,
Natasha, Sasha, Sean and Hank.
No gloomy girl or bored boy
Suggested a game or picked up a toy.
They all sat around expecting Joy.
Joy was planning to attend.
She loved to be around her friends.
She also loved the sunny sky
And sounds of seagulls flying by.
She liked to smell the springtime breeze.
She stopped to climb the climbing trees
Then hung there, swinging by her knees.
She passed several joyful hours
Skipping stones and picking flowers.
She forgot about her invitation
Joy found joy not expectation.
