My Lawn

Home plate’s gone from the back of the yard
So there’s no more backyard ball
The rusty swing set’s quiet now
But the grass is green and tall

The sidewalks don’t get covered with chalk
Rusty skates are all put away
The soccer balls have all gone flat
So the grass is not worn and frayed

Games of tag and hide and seek
Have ended in a hush
Once brown and bare from running feet
Now my lawn is green and lush

My lawn looks really great now
It’s so green from edge to edge
But when I look at how my children have grown
I’m glad I gave up grass and grew kids!
