Mom,tell me a story!

 
 
Mom, tell me a story !
 
~
Not now dear,I've ironing to do!
The clothes from clothes lines out there,
I must collect for tonight's  wear.
 
~
Mom,tell me a story !
 
~
Not today! I must weed the garden
Can't you see the grass long, Mear ?
Some snakes may hide in it, I fear.
 
~
Mom, why is the sky blue?
 
~
I  must go  to see that sick lady.
She needs my friendship and cheer.
Some other time for that, my dear .
 
~
Mom, who is the lady in pink?
 
~
Mear dear, your dad and I're talking
You should be in bed, not here !
It's dark then, so I don't see her tears .
 
~
I have to do ironing;
I have grass to cut,
I  have lots to do; so to Mear
Very often her words I don't hear.
 
~
I have no time to tell her story
About Adam and Eve; Rodolf the reindeer
And to  God; we aren't very near !
 
~
I don't see the ardour in her  eyes;
For  books of fairy or of Shakespeare
For warmth and love; oh dear !
 
~
It's sad that we have no time
For our precious ones; to love and cheer.
Yet we never miss TV  films or his beer !
 
~
That's what happened if you run a home and a career!
