springtime beginning

rain lightning thunder hail the complete set
of springtime storm fright and precipitation
enough to drive us all through trepidation
to courage enough to endure becoming wet
not for some idiotic wager or dumb bet
but with concern each for their reputation
(though all the rawness brings on sternutation)
for work demands we put aside all fret
and here's the crowd they all arrive at once
to do the kind of work we can't get done
to get all things in order through the house
it makes one seem that one is a real dunce
but in the absence of the warming sun
one does the job for oneself and one's spouse
