The "Living on the Porch" sign will soon be hung
With great anticipation and praises sung.
It announces that a table cloth will soon adorn
A picnic table full of meals with fresh peppers, tomatos, and corn.
The adirondacks and cushy wrought iron chairs
Wait for weary bodies who have left all their cares.
Impatiens, petunias, geraniums, and more
Will warm our craving spirits to the utter core.
Oh, how we long for the warmth of the sun,
To dry all those swim suits when swimming is done.
When on the porch, we'll raise our coffee cups and say,
"Here's to you Spring and Summer, we've come a long way!"
