Twas' a week after Christmas and all through the house,
Ann and Hooper were scurrying (thank goodness no mouse)
The pictures were hung all around with great care
awaiting the homeowners that would soon be there.
No one was nestled all snug in their beds,
But visions of bedrooms did dance in our heads.
Hooper in her yoga pants and I in my jeans
No time to rest, we still have to clean!
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
No worries... Ann just dropped her ladder.
Away to the window Hooper flew like a flash,
Separated the embroidered drapes and opened the sash.
The moon was now out (because we had been there all day)
And Ann dropped her ladder because she was fading away
With Ann on the lawn and the moving truck backing in,
The 2nd wind of craziness was about to begin.
Hooper took over, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment things were about to click.
More rapid than eagles the furniture came,
And Hooper whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
"Now, lamps! now, rug! now, sofa and chair!
On, sideboard! on Console! Please put it over there!
Tables on the porch! Don't touch the wall!
Now go away! go away! And we'll do it all!"
With a house full of furniture and accessories too.
Hooper knew she had much more to do.
The placing and pondering of each little thing...
"Ann, does this look good? or is there too much bling?"
Over the chimney the masterpiece was placed,
Opposite the sofa it will now face
Hooper took great care in making sure everything was great
She took all the details off the homeowner's plate
And when it was all done and we knew it was right,
Happy New Year to all... stay tuned for a great sight!
