SO LET THE SUN SHINE IN-poem [Sa, 8-4-18]

 I learned from my mother
And then from my wife
To let the bed air out a bit
Before covering it up again

And not to sit on the edge of the bed
To lace up my shoes
So the edges would stay firm

And most of all
To draw the drapes against
The slanted sun
So the colors of the couch
Would never fade

But now that I am old
I never pull the drapes
Against the sun
That couch will outlast me

And if it does not
I shall sit on it in the sunlight
