SELF-CARE@72 YEARS OF AGE

Selfportrait2
Keep the baby dry and fed.
Hold and clean
Breathing free.

Nurse the baby warm abed
Stroke and oil
Moisture be.

Wash and fold; clothe and wrap
Fresh and new
Menagerie.

At each sun-up, start anew:
Wash and clean and fold and cook.
Nurse that baby; keep her fed,
Warm and clean within her bed.

Taking care of baby will
Be taking care of you!
