Servant Maid on Leave

Servant maid on long leave

Our Servant maid
Has gone on a long leave
(almost a month or so):
she had to go to her native place
to get the roof of her old dilapidated house repaired
that had collapsed
when an assembly of monkeys got to play around.

Her absence from work
was far too long to manage
by postponing
what just had to be done.

So my daughter cleans and sweeps the front yard
also puts Rangoli with colored pieces of chalk,
changing the patterns daily:
she learns a new design or pattern every day.

If this is not,
what else could be,
a blessing in disguise?
