The Basic Essentials - Poem by Joyce Hemsley

Forty Word Poem:

Amelia's learning worthwhile art,
at evening class, with faithful heart.
'Domesticity' can be beautiful...
springtime cleaning ~ ever dutiful.

She will cook, without any trouble:
macaroons and raspberry crumble.
Amelia will be a wonderful wife
enjoying the simple rudiments of life.
