"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    @houselight If you are giving an instruction, you might say 'Count the table cloths, napkins, and wiping cloths, and send them to the laundry room.'

    The second sentence is incorrect. You could say: 'Counting the table cloths, napkins, and wiping cloths, make sure they are all there and then send them to the laundry room.'

    @mheredge If it were an imperative, wouldn't it be:

    Count the table cloths, the napkins and the wiping cloths and then send them to the laundry room!

    When there are two 'ands' I tend to use a comma @Frank but this might be also because I am having to do quite a lot of writing in American English where they use commas more in front of the 'and' for the final noun. Both are okay. Maybe you're being more British.
