My Gardening Hobby - a poem

My Gardening Hobby

My garden is looking ever so grim,
My overgrown bushes need a good trim.
The grass is as soggy as it can get,
When I’m out feeding birds, my feet get wet.

I slipped on some leaves the other day,
When collecting eggs from my hens that lay.
They broke and covered my new blue jeans,
I was scrambled so well I’d be nice with beans.

I tripped over the shovel and blacked my eye,
On a mop and a bucket placed near by.
I wished I had never got out of bed,
And looked at my seed catalogue instead!

Oh Richard I wonder have you ever produced a daughter,
I always thought it was jack and jill who fetched the pail of water.
So you did trip upon your pail a black eye shortly after,
But with this you have made us snigger followed by big laughter.

Lovely poem keep it up

I wrote a short poem once...

Wonder of winter
Wild winds that wastes summers weeds.
Wondrously weaving white snow
On Autumns golden bed.

Not as funny as yours though!!!
