A Boomer Poem, inspired by American Pie, by Don McLean

 

A long, long time ago

I can still remember when doing yard work made me smile

But I knew if I had the chance

I could use that time to dance

Or maybe nap in the courtyard for a while

Dousing us most of the days in March

Flowers blooming, pollen in the air

Winter dawn colorful one day, gray the next

In Georgia, where weather’s mercurial nature

Led us to invent “dressing in layers”

An assortment of coats, sweaters, scarves

Gloves for good measure

Leaf-peeping to fully enjoy the season that is Fall,

Trees embrace the last hurrah, and prepare for cold.
