Let's bring back the
OUTDOOR CLOTHESLIINE &
CLEAN FRESH AIR DRIED SHEETS
A clothesline was a news forecast
to neighbours passing by.
There were no secrets you could keep
when clothes were hung to dry.
It was also a friendly link
for neighbours always knew
if company had stopped on by
to spend a night or two.
For then you'd see the fancy sheets
and towels on the line.
You'd see the company table clothes
with their intricate design.
The line also announced a baby's birth
to folks who lived inside,
as brand new infant clothes were hung
so carefully with pride.
The ages of the children could
so readily be known
by watching how the sizes changed,
you'd know how much they'd grown.
It also told when illness struck,
as extra sheets were hung.
Then nightclothes, and a bathrobe, too,
Haphazardly were strung.
It said "Gone on vacation now"
when lines hung limp and bare.
It told, " We're back!" when full lines
sagged with not an inch to spare.
New folks in town were scorned upon
if wash was dingy grey,
as neighbours raised their brows
and looked disgustedly away.
But clothes lines now are of the past
for dryers make less work.
Now what goes on inside a home
is anybody's guess.
I really miss that way of life
it was a friendly sign
when neighbours knew each other best,
by what hung on the line!
