April 23, 2010   “Git’n Spring” Completed
*
Buds ‘r on the branches an’ the Robins ‘r on the ground
Mockin’ Bird’s a mockin’ an’ putt’n on ev’ry sound
Cardinal’s flash’n red, sky’s a turn’n blue
Grass is grow’n green an’ shoot’n up anew
Dirt is git’n turned an’ seed is go’n down
Ol’ Man Winter’s freez’n is git’n turned aroun
Calfs ‘r prance’n in the pasture, a bagg’n momma to come an’ play
Barn’s all clean an’ empty wait’n on the season’s hay
The chickens ‘r a cluck’n an’ the rooster’s look’n proud
wild flowers ‘r bloom’n in the fields what ain’t been plowed
Creek’s a run’n full an’ dance’n in the sun
Ol’ bull’s a kick’n up even tho’ he weighs a ton
Ducks ‘r quack’n, geese ‘r honk’n an’ the Blue Bird’s
on the wing
The world’s a wakin’ up cause it’s a git’n Spring!

The farmer’s up at daybreak a lay’n out his rows
Scour’n the plows and sharpenin’ the hoes
He’s mend’n on the harness and oil’n up the reins
Shine’n out the traces and smooth’n down the hames
Shoe’n all the Belgians an git’em in ther rigs.
Milk’n the cows and slopp’n all them pigs
Gather’n up some eggs but leave’n some fer chicks
Maters are need’n set’n so he’s whittlin down some sticks
Nanny’s done borned a lamb, it’s a bleat’n in the stall
Black as jet at midnight and cain’t stand up at all
Bite’n at ther bits and start’n at the plow
Horses er all atwitter and wont’n to go right now
The ground’s a give’n life when the plow lines start to sing
The airth’s a bust’n forth cause it’s a git’n Spring!
