Happy Housewife (A Poem)

Updated on February 12, 2015

Bronwen loves to enjoy literature and write poetry; some are in her book, 'Dithyrambles', available in her online bookstore.

Now I'm dashing about

I'm so happy I could shout;

Our small home is all neat

And there's plenty to eat,

See the table's all ready,

Baby's abed with her Teddy.


A last flick at the dust

And then I really must

Fast change into clean dress,

Fix my hair, it's a mess.

Fresh make-up is on,

Where's the time? It has gone.


How my thoughts they do roam,

'Cause my man's coming home!

      kenneth avery: I always think that it's just as well that we can't see what's in store in the future, except the wonderful place that we'll go to when we reach the end of the journey. I'm glad you're still here, though. Blessings.

      BlossomSB,

      Funny how life can change as if stopping on a dime. But considering the alternative, I am thankful to My Maker to still be here with you.

      Lady E: Thank you! It was a long time ago now, but happy memories - and a good reminder for me, too. Now, where did I put that duster?

      kenneth avery: Four hubs a day! Wow! Even two a week is really something! I get so wrapped up in writing my books that I'm lucky if I do two a month these days, but I do enjoy reading others' hubs and the interaction with them. Thank you - and a safe and good one for you, too.

      BlossomSB,

      Hooked? I know that is right. Time was not so long ago, I was physically and mentally able (back then) to produce at least four hubs a day, but now, I am happy with two a week thanks to my time now being split with my birdhouse business.

      Have a safe day and thanks for your comment.

      Cute poem - I know the feeling. I am still new at this stay at home mom thing and I must say - I don't know how I ever got anything done before when I was working outside of the house. Somedays I feel like I hardly sit down... ok - most days! Loved this! Well done!

      Hello Blossoms.

      "Cause my man's coming home" says it all!

      A very womanly attitude. Lucky the man with a happy wife. Well, to be a bit old-fashioned simply shows it's how a wife should always be for his man. I'm a bit old-fashioned too and the traditions just keep making things great by the day. Lovely poem, simple but wonderful! Thank you for sharing a piece of your awesome heart Blossoms.

      Voted up beautiful and awesome.

      It's a great start! I can vouch for the fact that it lasts for our earthly life, anyway. A husband-wife relationship can be a beautiful thing, but it doesn't just happen, it needs to be worked at.

      Well, that is a beautiful poem. It sure sounds like the women our parents were, not so much like us! Living for family and husband, how happy those children and men must have been. Nowadays, it is all business like, we all get to dress up for work and kind of undress to sleep. God help us. Home is warmer the other way.
