ODDS AND ENDS
When clearing out the bureau drawers
As the busy housewife cleans,
She finds a lot of odds and ends,
Let's listen as she gleans.
"Here is a recipe I had
To make my Christmas cake,
And here's a letter I received
Last year from cousin Jake."
"Here is a ball of mending wool,
A box of carpet tacks;
Some score cards used in playing bridge,
A marble and some jacks."
"An old worn deck of playing cards,
A ball of coloured twine,
My smelling salts I thought was lost;
It all turns up in time."
"How all this stuff accumulates
It's more than I can say,
But bureau drawers is just the place
For hiding things away."
