Poem #6 – Spring Break

Oh joy! Warm breeze blows through trees;

Hummingbirds, flowers, pollen, bees;

Rain finally falls – I am so relieved;

Lettuce, tomatoes, peppers in their own row – seeds, grow now please!


Windows opened, cool air flows in on a cloudy day;

Muddy, dark, sleepy, – comfy in the house we stay;

Napping, lounging, wet – can’t go out to play;

The best weather I could ever ask for – wouldn’t have it any other way!


Flowers and plants are fed, the sun brightly shines again;

In the park kids play, at picnic tables sit women and men;

Slabs cook away on the grill while relatives ask how you’ve been;

Old uncle bangs the stakes down for horseshoes, hope my team wins!


Laid back in my lawn chair under the shade when my cell phone vibrates;

Well, what do ya know, it just happens to be a call from one of the kids’ schoolmates;

“Hi, just asking for permission for us to go out and skate.”

“Oh sure that’s fine as long as you remember to be back home at eight.”


It’s the weekend baby, the sky is clear, this is as good as it gets;

The bills are paid, the house is clean, all our needs are met;

Call up some friends, make some lemonade and set up the volleyball net;

What a day it was, what a day it was, I wonder what will happen next!


Spring Break is over,the fun is done, time to go back to school;

Gotta get these weeds from around my veggies, got my gardening tools;

Bedtime at nine, and back up at six, that’s the golden rule;

Can’t wait til summer when it’s really hot, but man, will it be cool!
