I Can See It

Spring is coming!

It’s showing its face

Thursday’s temperature

will be seventy-eight!

My hearty perennial

is bleeding its hearts

Soon the boys’ bedtime

won’t even be dark

We’ll plant a garden

and watch it grow

Well, the weeds at least

We don’t weed or hoe

Our tomatoes give fruit

that we neglect to pick

until they are rotten

and might make us sick

Zucchini gets lost

in the fronds of its vine

It grows mega-sized

In little to no time

The weeds overcome

the kale, squash and berries

Our thumbs are not green

Our plants must be wary

But fear not my dear

for within our powers

is not growing food

but flourishing flowers!
