Taking A Bath

          Taking A Bath

Taking a bath is heaven:

Fine, benign – divine!

Bath is water, laughter in ascendance.

Earth in essence, which in

Other planets ‘round our girth

Shows by its absence.

Activities we take take for granted

Planned or planted, 

Standing for life on this planet,

Such as sitting in the tub,

Warm water spawning  suds of pleasure –

There are simply no word banks, no treasure

In the world’s World Banks to thank. 

For whom or whatsoever gave

This saving H2o to pave the way

For fish to swim in, brimming over for we humans

Makes the Bath a metaphor 

For watered and aerated forms:

For soil-warmed worms; 

For beasts and nests

And all the messy, blessed rest

Of us.
