walked outside for a while,
in some rays of spring sun.
I was feeling
pretty awesome till I noticed,
things that needed to be done.
glass table was covered in dust,
for a nice
picnic this just wouldn't do.
beds needed weeding,
azaleas needed trimming too.
the squirrel feeder is empty,
hummingbird nectar is dry.
my hanging baskets will need water,
they wither up and die.
which usually flies so free,
got tangled by the wind.
old oak shed some very big limbs,
them all over the yard again.
take it any longer I thought,
at least go straighten the flag.
way I grabbed a sack of peanuts,
squirrels the whole dang bag.
I then cleaned
my picnic table,
up the limbs from out of the yard.
my hummingbirds a dose of juice,
I had gotten really tired.
I sit down
on my lawn chair laid back my head,
my eyes and listened to the baby birds.
to myself I love the country life,
back in and wrote down these words.
