One Day

I have spread wet linen
On lavender bushes,
I have swept rose petals
From a garden walk.
I have labeled jars of respberry jam,
I have baked a sunshine cake;
I have embroidered a yellow duck
On a small blue frock.
I have polished andirons,
Dusted the highboy,
Cut sweet peas for a black bowl\,
Wound the tall clock,
Pleated a lace ruffle...
I have lived a poem.
Ethel Romig Fuller
