Wash Day

I wash the dishes at the sink

scrub-a-dub old food and grease

plates and bowls and silverware clink
Ah, for a moment of peace

but daily duties call my name—

dishes! laundry! floors! without cease

grubby, my house bears no blame

months of hot wind and dusty pain

on my poor house laid claim

last night the Lord opened cloudy vein

my home and I rejoiced again

in a moment of peace

and  blessing of rain
