"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

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."
