Dr Smith that lucky man.
Had a wife called Mary Anne.
He gave her children twenty two.
How ever did this woman do?
She had many helping hands
To take her children on the sands.
They swam in batches in the sea.
And then she took them home for tea.
She had triplets,she had twins.
She even had one set of quins.
So loneliness was quite unknown.
And all were trained to use the phone.
She was a very sturdy wife.
She worked very hard at life.
But once a week she went to town
And looked at bags and evening gowns.
But Dr Smith did not go out.
He was dusting , have no doubt.
At night they went to bed and loved
Just like a pair of turtle doves.
In the morning she rose up
And made some tea in a big cup.
She had a tiny chunk of time.
For such a one,this is no crime.
We all need a peaceful break,
To sit by our own inner lake.
To see the fish and watch the sun
As gold and glowing up it comes.
So if you have many children too,
Take heart from this small tale.
She took her time to meditate…
And her heart never failed.
For men may come and men may go,
and likewise children too.
You need to have some free “me time.”
Whatever else you do.
