My Wife the Equestrienne

She brought her horse home on Monday,
his lines were rich and fine,
She forgot to thaw out dinner,
so we went out to dine,
She saddled up on Tuesday,
she says every day is a must,
They really looked quite lovely,
but she quite forgot to dust.
On Wednesday it was a trail ride
they galloped in the sun,
All windblown, bronzed and smiling,
 but the laundry wasn’t done.
The new trailer came on Thursday,
a bright and cherry red,
She tuned up the truck and added a hitch,
but she never made the bed.
She worked late on Friday 
to pay for the horse she adores,
It never bothered her at all, 
the mud, hay and dust now covering our floors.
I hired a maid on Saturday, 
my week is now complete.
My wife can ride all she wants,
the house will still be neat!
It’s nearly lunchtime Sunday -
Where is the maid with my plate and cup?
Oh no! I don’t believe it!
She’s out there saddling up!

The Real Poem...

My Wife the Gardener

She dug the plot on Monday – the soil was rich and fine,
She forgot to thaw out dinner – so we went out to dine…
She planted roses Tuesday – she says they are a must,
They really are quite lovely – but she quite forgot to dust.
On Wednesday it was daisies – they opened up with sun,
All whites and pinks and yellows – but the laundry wasn’t done…
The poppies came on Thursday – a bright and cherry red,
I guess she really was engrossed – she never made the bed…
It was violets on Friday – in colours she adores,
It never bothered her at all – all crumbs upon the floors
I hired a maid on Saturday – my week is now complete,
My wife can garden all she wants – the house will still be neat!
It’s nearly lunchtime Sunday – and I cannot find the maid,
Oh no! I don’t believe it!
She’s out there with the spade!

I wanted to ask on your last post, but I don't know what happened to the comments, where is the link to the article you wrote?


I also like your version of the poem better! :)

I like both versions, since I'm also a gardener.

scsarah said...

I think my husband wrote it.

So true.

Your version is better. My fiance doesn't want a stranger coming in to do the cleaning for us. Not sure why. I hope he enjoys doing most of the cleaning himself =)

Ironically I quite enjoy organizing and sweeping up at the barn!
