The Party is Over

The little girl guests have all left -
From their squealing I may be deaf.

The generous gifts have been unwrapped -
The dog's manic energy is finally zapped.

The puppy-shaped birthday cake has been eaten-
The entire house has been neatened.

The thank you notes are still left to write -
But for now, the party is over...goodnight.
