The Housewife ~

The Housewife Poem

Jesus, teach me how to be
Proud of my simplicity.

Sweep the floors, wash the clothes,
Gather for each vase a rose.

Iron and mend a tiny frock,
Taking notice of the clock.

Always having time kept free,
For childish questions asked of me.

Grant me wisdom Mary had,
When she taught her little lad.

~ Catherine Cate Coblentz
