    Saturday

    Brightly

    Saturday is a special day.

    It’s the day we get ready for Sunday:

    We clean the house, and we shop at the store,

    So we won’t have to work until Monday.

    We brush our clothes, and we shine our shoes,

    And we call it our get-the-work-done day.

    Then we trim our nails, and we shampoo our hair,

    So we can be ready for Sunday.
