Not A Quilting Bee - Poem by Velvet Thorn

I'm folding laundry in the sun
My neighbor says, 'That looks like fun'
And soon she brings her laundry out
Then other neighbors come about
Drive down our street and you shall see
A neighborly laundry-folding bee!

    I liked this very much. I love when somebody can write a fun poem about a not-so-fun task like laundry. Nicely done. sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

    This poem seems hauntingly familiar as though I had read it before some place. Strange. (Report) Reply

    I can picture this quite well. Some neighborhoods are like that. I look forward to seeing more of your humourful creations. (Report) Reply
