I’ve vacuumed all the house, and
I’ve mopped up the kitchen floor.
I’ve oiled the wooden tables,
shined the glass beside the door.
I’ve hung fresh bathroom towels, and
I’ve scoured the kitchen sink.
I’ve put out autumn colors
to replace my Summer Pink.
I’ve done the best I can to get
a clean, inviting look.
I hope my company brings food.
I’m much too tired to cook.
