My ode to Friday:

The weekend is a respite from a busy week for Rachel and her family.

Whenever Fridays roll around

I begin to take hold

Of all the busy things we did

And the achievements unfold.


A sense of relief takes over me

The stresses of the week reduce

Because Fridays have a special feel

Soon we can all cut loose.


Fridays mean no more homework

The kids can relax and play

The busyness of school

Just begins to fade away.


Friday is the weekday that means

No culinary feats for tea

It is the one night of the week

We buy takeaway, you see.


For Fridays mean the end of alarm clock shock

And the start of frolicking and play

Throughout the weekend, lazing about

For two complete whole days.


We know when Fridays come around

There’s special times ahead

For having family outings

Enjoying quality time instead.


So whenever Mondays come around

There’s no need to despair

For soon the days will disappear

Friday will come again; walking on air!
