When a mole must do spring cleaning...
When a mole must do spring cleaning,
He will work quite hard and so,
Moley shocked himself by saying,
“Bother and O Blow!”
But his heart was filled with longing,
And his molish will was rent
By the soft insistent calling
Of spring’s sweet discontent.
So the Mole said: “Hang spring cleaning!”
And he bolted from his home,
And he scratched and scrooged and scrabbled
Up through the fragrant loam.
And his snout popped into sunlight,
And thus it came to pass
That a Mole did roll in pure delight
In the warm, sweet meadow grass.
