"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

As we know Compound Sentence made by two or more independent clauses joined coordinating subjunctions: For, and, nor, but, or, yet, so.
This sentence below does have "and" but someone told me it's a simple sentence!! Why?
"Ben cleaned the kitchen, vacuumed the living room, and mowed the lawn before going for a bike ride."
