The windows need washing, the curtains do too,
The cobwebs of lace, just will not do.
Dust bunnies run, from the look on my face,
And the broom needs to fly all over this place.
The tables need waxing, the floors need the same,
And the vacuum just won't, quit calling my name.
So much to be done, as spring comes around,
An adventure of sorts, wondering what will be found.
There's that sock that was lost, way back last fall,
Found hiding, between the couch and the wall.
And an ornament, that fell off of the tree,
In a shoe that's been missing since ninety-three.
There's the wishbone from the Thanksgiving turkey,
Looking quite nasty and furry and murky.
Some halloween candy, put away for a while,
Funny how the pumpkins, have lost their big smile.
I always thought spring, was meant for re-birth,
Now I know it's for all that I will unearth,
As I make this house all shiny and bright,
If only it will stay that way, at least for one night!

Good to know, that it's not just my house where socks run away to try and find the shoes that took to hiding near where the wishbone grew feet and walked to amid the dust bunnies under the couch. All right I am crazy, I admit it.

In my house I come up with totally unrecognizable objects. This poem gave me a laugh, we've all had socks appear in strange places. Great poem!

Hi BSC,

I have never forgot this poem, and to this day have never finished spring cleaning from last year, I thinks it's time to get the old bucket and mop!!!

Love, Cerenity
