TEN…author unknown


For my friend Stephanie…I think you can relate

‘some houses try to hide the fact that children shelter there

ours boasts of it quite openly, the signs are everywhere


for smears are on the windows

little smudges on the doors

I should apologize I guess for toys strewn on the floor


but I sat down with the children

and we played and laughed and read

and if the doorbell doesn’t shine

their eyes will shine instead

For when at times I am forced to choose

the one job or the other

I like to be a housewife

but I love to be a mother’
