A Joyful Sunday !

Mr. Brown is in the garden,

busy in mowing the lawn.

He is now joined by little Jim,

his seven year old son.


Jim takes out the weeds,

Dad watches - feels good,

Mrs. Brown waters the plants,

She is in a jovial mood.


Janet, their youngest daughter,

is in the garden too!

With her hand gloves on

she finds some work to do.


She puts the weeds in a basket,

with her tiny soft hands,

Daddy comes, takes a look,

happily there he stands.


Their very dear kitten arrives,

wonders what’s going on!

She looks quite happy too

as she rolls on the lawn.


Mum returns to the kitchen,

the kitten watches, makes a run.

Food is served, she starts to eat,

wagging her tail with fun.


Garden work gets a momentum

with three of them being busy.

With helping hands of children

work today has been easy.


All work is complete now,

the garden is looking so clean!

They have smiles on their faces ,

the lawn is looking lush green.


They get home, have their lunch,

the meal is delicious to taste.

Later, all of them sit on the couch

to have chat and take some rest.


Jim and Janet tell their parents

that every Sunday henceforth,

they will help keep the garden tidy

and it is certainly their oath.


Parents smile, they are happy,

plan to give the children a treat.

They would take them out for dinner

in a restaurant down the street.


The children hear about the plan,

they dance with utter delight.

They feel everyday should be like a Sunday

and that would indeed be so right!

Dear Kamalesh, this takes me back to the good old days before laptops and cell phones, when families communicated face to face,not through either gimmick. That was when Sundays were sacred to family life. This lovely hub sounds like a trip down memory lane, and what a nice memory.

I vote Up and Beautiful.
