It Isn't Work

I received a beautiful hand-made card the other day, with this poem in it. The note on the poem said "by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, November, 1927"

It Isn't Work
It isn't work, if you like to do it, 
It isn't work if it gives a thrill, 
If always pleasant thoughts imbue it, 
If you do it gladly and with a will. 

It isn't "housework"--dusting, mending, 
Scrubbing floors and baking things, 
Washing dishes and pans unending, 
To one who laughs and smiles and sing. 

It isn't work, if you find good measure
Of cheer and sun in every minute. 
It isn't housework--it's home pleasure, 
With a little love and laughter in it!
