A sign

At the park with the chequered blanket spread out
a view unparalleled of the river
and gentle jazz from the radio.
                      The scene is set
                      The players are now here.
Out come the pasta, fries and salad
and fresh juice, nachos and sun-dried tomatoes.

This is how it was
This exact same way
When gramps proposed to nan.

And now here we are,
three generations later
hoping to recreate the magic.

But here comes the rain...
Is it a sign?
