SPRINGTIME RHYMING COUPLETS
(Basically…two related lines that end with the same sound…!)
Tidy gardens waiting for
Someone to sit down and snore.
Masonry froggie sits for hours,
Hoping for a load of flowers!
Variegated leaves undimmed
Exponentially fill in.
Fruit tree florals gradually fade
But garden visitors are “made in the shade”.
Poison ivy finds its niche,
Valient gardeners scratch an itch.
Lilac bushes flower strong…
Robins sing a perfumed song.
Hummingbirds among flowers flit,
Nesting eggs to deposit.
Open windows screen in cats
Chattering at birds (what’s with that?).
Felines doing no dread crime…
Lounging with no thought of time.
Rumbling of motorcycle “gangs”…
Distant thunder on our peace hangs.
(A Slight Change of Pace!)
Softly singing afternoons,
Slower paced old brides and grooms…
One or the other has gone Home
Singing throught the chores alone.
Little dogs sleep inside,
Unless Master will take a ride!
Skyward we hear every blade
Of propeller’s progress made.
Stillness calms our inner ear
In this tranquil rural time of year!
