Poetry by Mimi: April 2021


After a tough season of snow upon snow
We can’t wait to see the first crocus grow
Or the delicate blossoms of daffodils
And flower boxes jutting from window sills

Let’s make this Spring one that can’t be beat
By helping to beautify our Main Street
Join the band of gardening volunteers
To plant barrels and garden that bring heart-warming cheers

Yes, we are a small hamlet
But don’t put us down
We can make every effort
To be the toast of the town

Let’s use our creativity and our zeal
By amping up our hamlet’s curb appeal
You will feel so good when you step outside
Mother Nature will feel a sense of pride

It will lift your mood and brighten your heart
That you have selflessly taken part
