“A Good Day,” Friend, May 2004, 28

A Good Day

I woke up very early.

I was happy all day long.

I never said a naughty word,

But smiled and hummed a song.

I obeyed my dear, sweet mother

When she said to clean my room.

I helped my dad and grandpa

By sweeping with my broom.

I read a long, long story

To my little sister, Kate.

I helped my Great-aunt Sally

Bake and frost a cherry cake.

I walked the dog an hour,

Cleaned the birdcage, fed the cat,

Carried out the garbage pail—

I even took a nap.

It makes me feel so happy

When I finish all my tasks.

I’ve done everything I should.

I hope this feeling lasts.
