Enjoying The Laundromat


Here at the laundromat, sitting here writing while
there are so many people washing their clothes -
every washer and dryer being full.

Little ones being good, helping parents fold as
best they can.

A little boy, gingerly holding up his father's
sock against his foot, smiling and saying, 'Look
it fits'!

Then erupting into a fit of laughter as he realizes
that I was noticing.

A cute little boy, enjoying life even though he's
stuck at the laundromat, brings a smile to my heart.

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
