Ready, Set, Spring

April 08, 1991|By Eileen Tarcay

Sawing, sanding, sweeping, painting,

Washing windows and the sills.

(Look, a robin hopping briskly,

And there, a ''host of daffodils.'')

Get down, get busy, dust and polish,

Wax the floor and mend the chair.

(But pause and visit Sherwood Gardens --

Their glory is for all to share.)

Set out plants and trim the hedges,

Rake the yard around the edges.

Get out clothes for warmer weather.

All too soon spring will decline.

Now let's get ready, all together,

And with all creation shine.
