Shade-trees, Clothes Pegs, Wet Clothes Outside,
Hung branches show new leaf-bud coats
Spring rains draw forth their foliage
Full leaved arches open spread above
Summer lovers shade!
Pegged Wash ©
Clothes hang outside to dry clean
Their colours shout their glory
Sheets snap and shirts bloat outside
Pant legs dance and twist!
Wet Clothes ©
Strong fragrant breezes flow hotly
And caress to dry wet cloth
Snapping all the pegged washing
Smelling of wash soap.
Clutching pegs on clothing lines
Hang washed cloth by their corners
Summer time blown breezes touch-dry
Birds void while perching!
