I love the trees of our back yard
They stand so tall and strong.
Offering shade and rest complete.
They call me, “Come sit down!”
I hear the breeze dance off the leaves
and see the sun shine through.
How can I resist the call to come;
but there’s so much to do.
My list, how long it’s grown through time
that Rest I’ve long ignored.
I think I’ll stand and gaze
a while and feel the touch of breeze.
For fully resting seems so far
I cannot with great ease.
Who will ever check my list?
Each task making sure is done?
Maybe this once, my list can wait!
C’mon let’s have some fun!
