No birds singing yet
Early darkness is deep, still
Rest falls on my heart

Sis, thread my needle.
Stitches dim and dart away;
I can still help baste.

Putting my shoes on
Is no longer a problem.
Thank God for Oh-tee

My feet pound the sand
The earth is calm and quiet
I watch the sun rise

The mountain is high
And the folding unending
I hate laundry day

Sweet satisfaction
