Leaves..don’t ya just love them?



Last year i had a yard of trees
with lots and lots of leaves
the city said don’t burn them
compost and bag them please.
so i raked and baged up 40 bags
and i built a compost bin
i piled the leaves up six foot high
till i couldn’t put more in
i put mulch around my flowers
my shrubs and roses too
Hey, if you need mulch just let me know
i’ll rake you a bag or two.
one thing is for certian
i’ve had my fill of leaves
by autum of next year there’ll be
one less yard of trees.
