Hopefully Spring is just around the (brrrr) corner. Here are two poems I wrote for spring.

My clothesline is doing the salsa today –
It took the blue denims to get underway.
My flannelette nightie is starting to swing,
While the red plaid pajamas perform highland flings.
The white percale sheets with their corners so neat
Are twirling and swirling, a marvelous feat!
And Granny’s old housecoat twists in the breeze
With Junior’s bermudas and daughter’s bright T’s.
You’ll never see a fandango so fine
As my laundry is dancing all over the line.

Flowers for a bouquet,
Tadpoles in a jar,
Rocks inside our pockets
So we know where they are.
We skipped across the meadow,
Splashed across the pond,
Climbed up all the hillsides
To see the farms beyond.
Cattails are aplenty,
Pussy willows too,
Busy bees are buzzing,
Now what’s left for us to do?
