A poem for
A DAY'S WORK
Today I left some dishes dirty
The beds were made around 2.30
The nappies soaked a little longer;
their odour grew a little
The crumbs I spilt the day before
are staring at me from
The dirty streaks on the window panes
will still be
there next time it rains.
"Oh shame! Oh lazy one" you say
just what did you do today?"
I nursed a baby while she slept,
held a toddler while he wept.
I played a game of hide and seek
squeezed a toy and made it squeak
I pushed a swing, I sang a song,
I taught a child whatís right from wrong.
What did I do this whole
day through ?
Not much that shows, I guess itís true....
you think what I have done
May be important to someone
brown eyes and soft dark hair.
If that is true Iíve done my share....
