More from the East Wichita News--1942

April is National Poem month so here is another one from 1942.
A Perfect Day
Grandmother, on a winter's day,
Milked the cows and fed them hay,
Slopped the hogs,saddled the
And got the children off to school;
Did a washing,mopped the floor,
Washed the windows,and did
some chores;
Cooked a dish of home-dried fruit,
Pressed her husband's Sunday suit,
Swept the parlor, made the bed,
Split some fire wood, and lugged in
enough to fill the kitchen bin;
Cleaned the lamps and put in oil,
Stewed some apples she thought
would spoil;
Churned some butter,baked a cake,
Then exclaimed "For heaven's sake
The calves have got out of the
Went out and chased them in
Gathered the eggs and locked
the stable,
Back to the house and set the table,
Cooked a supper that was delic-
And afterwards washed all the
Fed the cat and sprinkled the
Mended a basketful of hose;
Then opened the organ and began to play
"When you come to the end of a
perfect day"

From East Wichita News 1942


Dream not too much about what

you'll do to-morrow,

How well you'll work perhaps

another year;

Tomorrow's chance you do not


Today is here.

Boast not to much of mountains

you will master,

The while you linger in the vaile


To dream is well,but plodding

brings us faster

To where we want to go.

Swear not someday to break some

habit's fetter.

When this old year is dead and

passed away;

If you have need of living wiser,


Begin today

A Visitor To My Yard

This picture is form Wickapedia,but I can not get a good picture of my little visitor in the rain with my little camera. My friend has been here for about a week at first I thought it was hurt.but it got up from the patio and started to eat the bird seed then it flew up to the fence. I know it is a Morning Dove although I have never seen one here before.There is only the one I think it is lost.
