Early spring and the ground is smushy

Have to get outside and rake like a hussy

Raking the leaves makes me question

Why I didn’t do this last fall in a session

Now my back is breaking

from all the dam raking

Still have more to do

Picking up all the doggie poo

Leaves have to go into big paper bags

Or they won’t pick them up … what a drag

  5. Almost makes you want to leave them down and say it’s a new decorating style, carpet leaves.
