Something I wrote in 1997 - when both our "kids" were in college . . .
a parody on Stopping By the Woods on a Snowy Evening
by Robert Frost
Stopping in the Laundry Room Over Christmas Vacation
Whose clothes are these, I think I know,
They usually reside at college, though;
The owners'll be pleased if I wash them here
However washing and sorting is often slow.
It does seem odd they're on MY floor
As I rarely see them anymore . .
Time between visits at home can take
Longer now as at their studies they chore.
I give each garment a little shake,
Dousing items important is a mistake -
The only other sound's water's rush
Like that a waterfall would make.
The clothes are lovely, memories sweep,
Where did the years go, I seem to squeak!
But I've much to do before I sleep,
So much to do before I sleep!
