    Perfect Day

    Grandmother, on a winter's day,
    Milked the cows and fed them hay;
    Slopped the hogs, harnessed the mule,
    And got the children off to school.

    Did a washing, mopped the floors,
    Washed the windows and did some chores,
    Cooked a dish of home-dried fruit,
    And pressed her husband's Sunday suit.

    Swept the parlor, made the beds,
    Baked a dozen loaves of bread,
    Split the firewood, lugged some in,
    (enough to fill the kitchen bin.)

    Churned the butter, baked a cake,
    And then exclaimed, "For goodness sake,
    Those darned calves are out again!"
    Went and chased them into the pen.

    Gathered the eggs, locked the stable,
    Back to the house to set the table;
    Cooked a supper that was delicious,
    Afterward washed up all the dishes.

    Fed the cat, sprinkled the clothes,
    Mended a basket full of hose,
    Then opened the organ and began to play
    "When You Come to the End of a Perfect Day!"
