Subject(s): Laundry & Laundering


We washed our clothes and put them out to dry
The different pieces that a family wears;
Bright cup towels and gay handkerchiefs close by:
Some clothes were new but other things had tears.
And while they limply hang upon the line
They do not fear the torrid ironing hour.
Stretched in the stimulating spring sunshine
They flap defiance at a coming shower.
The neighbors going past might so look in
And count the pieces of our wardrobe now,
And if they do, with passing humor thin,
The wet wash dankly gives a mocking bow.

The dirty linen that comes clean at home
Owes no apology to folks who roam.
