Artist's Description

My dishes went unwashed today,
I didn’t make the bed,
I took her hand and followed
Where her eager footsteps led.

Oh yes, we went adventuring,
My little girl and I…
Exploring all the great outdoors
Beneath the summer sky

We waded in a crystal stream,
We wandered through the woods…
My kitchen wasn’t swept today
But life was gay and good.

We found a cool, sun-dappled glade
And now my little girl knows
How Mother Bunny hides her nest,
Where jack-in-the-pulpit grows.

We watched a robin feed her young,
We climbed a sunlit hill…
Saw cloud-sheep scamper through the sky,
We plucked a daffodil.

That my house was neglected,
That I didn’t brush the stairs,
In twenty years, no one on earth
Will know, or even care.

But that I’ve helped my little girl
To loving adulthood grow,
In twenty years, the whole wide world
May look and see and know.

Author…..Mrs. Roy L. Peifer
