Life's Simple, Sweetest Gifts...

No, this is not sheer drudgery
Though Duty replenishes lists
With chore-galore monotony
These are life’s simple, sweetest gifts

For health and strength supplies the grace
To care for home and families
Then pray we thankfully embrace
Tangible blessings such as these

For should the gift of strength and health
Withdraw its beauty for a while
My, how we would pine for the wealth
Of common tasks to make us smile
