Sweep, Sweep This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   Pool covered tight as a drum

Rainbow of leaves raked and bagged

A dreaded time approaches

Father bellows for the family to gather round

We assemble and march outside

Mission appointed: BATTLING THE GARAGE!

Father moves treasures used under boiling sun,

Mother sweeps up summer footprints left behind,

My sibling gathers toys not used in snow,

I push the bikes into appropriate shelter

Mission completed

The fort is armed for winter

The troops march in for dinner
