Woman Work

I've got the children to tend
The clothes to mend
The floor to mop
The food to shop
Then the chicken to fry
The baby to dry
I got company to feed
The garden to weed
I've got shirts to press
The tots to dress
The can to be cut
I gotta clean up this hut
Then see about the sick
And the cotton to pick.

Shine on me, sunshine
Rain on me, rain
Fall softly, dewdrops
And cool my brow again.

Storm, blow me from here
With your fiercest wind
Let me float across the sky
'Til I can rest again.

Fall gently, snowflakes
Cover me with white
Cold icy kisses and
Let me rest tonight.

Sun, rain, curving sky
Mountain, oceans, leaf and stone
Star shine, moon glow
You're all that I can call my own.

This is going to sound biased, but since the werewolf is my favorite creature, I must give you such a high amount of Kudos on this brilliant piece! ! Having written quite a bit about the beast myself, you know as well as I do that it cannot be tamed. :)
a werewolf love story is just..the cherry on top C: good poem.
Wow what a great story and one that alot of people are into now the werewolf theme. I think you did a marvelous job pulling it off.
I gave this my normal top score of 9. I thought this was most creative and demonstrated an ability to take an imaginary vision and make it come alive. The writing was superb. You truly have ability. GW62
