Now Lets Go Out and Play

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 strew on the floor. But I sat down with the children and we played and laughed and read.

And if the bathtub doesnt shine, their eyes will shine instead.

For when, at times, Im forced to choose the one job or the other, I want to have a lovely house, but first I 'll be a mother.
