Patience - Poem by Eleanor M. Dirksen

Regardless what happens,
Patience is often a need,
Waiting can be stressful,
But not if you look and read. Make a list for the week,
Even plan your daily work,
Then cross out what gets done,
So there'll be no need to shirk. Make every minute count,
Even if future dreaming,
Sometimes success emerges
Which can create some beaming. Do the job well each time,
And enjoy the work at hand,
Have fun while doing it,
So PATIENCE makes a good stand.
