You Don't Need a Schedule.
Do you need a schedule to observe a flower's bloom?
To rest your eyes on soft blue skies, or hum a happy tune?
Is a grand plan necessary to read that cheering book?
Or at a golden setting sun , to stop and have a look?
Or wear that lovely floral skirt that makes you feel so pretty?
- You only need a schedule for the boring and the gritty!
The world of work must use them, along with motivation
to knuckle down (and pray that it's soon time for your vacation),
The world of work demands we work at such relentless pace
No time to think of life and love, no respite and no grace.
But housewife dear, the thing is clear
Our natural way is not
to rush and push and stress ourselves
until we're super hot!
Slow down and smell the coffee! The home-made cakes and pies
And see a pretty, tidy home, appear before your eyes.
Read stories to the children and listen to their worry
Mummy makes it better when she isn't in a hurry,
Greet dear hubby at the door, the man you love and married,
You cannot do these things at work, or if you're rushed and harried.
You do not need a schedule to love your housewife day,
There is no rush - it does get done, and you'll have time to play,
Many joys await you and contented moments too,
But don't expect the world to understand the things you do.
Turn off the computer, and the mobile and TV,
Take time, enjoy and potter round - and have a cup of tea!
