As the flowers unfold,
Beginning to bloom,
A new story is told,
In everyone’s room.
The children play,
Throughout the day;
Having the time of their lives.
Enjoying themselves,
They run through wildflowers.
Inside, fathers are preparing
Loading the tackle and bait,
Readying the rods and hooks.
They'll bring home their best catches,
be it bluegill,
or a simple catfish.
In the garden, the mothers watch the little ones play.
Pulling the weeds, and planting daisies,
They pick a bouquet
Of tulips and roses,
of marigolds and chrysanthemums.
As the fathers return home, they hum a merry tune.
Once the fish are roasted,
They all sit together.
Praising the wonderful weather
That only Springtime can provide.

The author's comments:
I tweaked my last poem a bit for a poetry reading today. If I read an original piece like this, I'll get Forty extra credit points from my teacher, and my poetry will be judged by the librarians at the coffee house reading. Wish me luck!
