Spring Cleaning

Lisa Cox

Flowers bloomed

In the living room

The seeds were

Tracked in on our shoes

Coming up in April

They reminded us

To trim the moss

On the kitchen table

And the train the vines

Round the toilet bowl

While the grassy path down

The hall was sprouting

Dandelions that needed

To be uprooted

And in the laundry

Lilacs hung heavy

And fragrant framing

The drier, while daffodils

Soaked up water from

A leak behind the washer

And there –

In the light fixture –

In the kitchen

A nest of baby birds

Shrilled for breakfast

And we all knew

Spring cleaning must

Begin in earnest
