A relaxing moment

A bright yellow butterfly fluttered by,
It's delicate flight caused me to sigh.
A lizard pops up every day in the morn,
On the back fence it has a long yawn.
I know how it feels as I sit and ponder,
Slow life down to enjoy, before I go up yonder.
Worked hard all my life, tripping over its boulders,
It's time to take the yoke from my shoulders.
Pot a few plants to give our garden some colour,
Without our efforts, out there would be duller.
Have a spot of lunch to stop a growling belly,
Then it's me to the veranda and Fran to her telly.
Now I sit,cool glass by my side and kindle in hand,
We relax, take a few deep breaths, and say
Ee my love ain't life just grand.

Very nicely said! Really, there is, as you say, so much more positive in life than negative for most of us. And no need to feel guilty for a well earned rest or vacation. Love this work!

We put in a combined 110 years of labor so we could enjoy the twilight years. It was all very much worth it. I enjoyed your childhood poem Thanks for commenting. God Bless. D
