Fresh Air

This pink pig usually sits
in a pink chenille chair.
but escaped out the door
to get some fresh air.

She found two-colored verbena
and gorgeous primrose;
though she will not be wheezing
through her fabric nose.

Now me? I might pay
with itchy eyes and a sneeze.
I must play in wildflowers;
just as blooms draw the bees.

I rush out to find them
in the short Texas spring.
Taking joy from wildflowers
is a very good thing!


Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
is heard in our land.
