Don’t Forget…A Poem, by Kate Hanford
We are always so busy it’s easy to forget an invitation or be late for an appointment because we forgot to write it down.
Do you have a message board with all your reminders in one place?
Maybe it looks something like this:
The message board hangs on the kitchen wall
With Post-It notes in penciled scrawl
Children’s pictures on magnetic strips
Parties, injections, and fishing trips
That silly hat in a photo booth
and how to ‘make your custard smooth’
A takeaway menu for lazy nights
Dental appointments and wedding invites
Notes of dietary inspirations
Meaningful verse and wise quotations
‘ Sponsor me in a Charity Run ?’
Reminder to get my highlights done
A coupon with pizzas half the price
Cakes to bake and slimming advice
A membership card for the gym
Karate lessons and a sponsored swim
Colour charts to paint a room
Worming tablets and fur to groom
Reminder to buy pasta, bread, and cheese
In kiddy scrawl.. ‘and some chocolate please’
So as you can see, it would not be true
If I ever said I had nothing to do!
