Staying power…

There is a power that only a few of us have
And that does not include me!
This amazing power, my husband has
And my daughter Natasha has inherited it!

It goes like this:

Albert reading an hour, two hours
Three hours or four
With little breaks for lunch and snack!

Natasha working on a story
For hours at a time
So quietly that we forget
She’s around

Natasha drawing and coloring at the computer
From morning till noon
And then returning to it in the afternoon!

Albert disappearing into the bedroom
To rest
And staying there most of the day

Now, I must say he’s not idle
He reads
He contemplates
And maybe takes a nap

But to be honest
I couldn’t do this
I’d last maybe an hour, max!

Too restless to sit for hours
I need change
The scenery needs to change
And the activity as well

So, that’s why I say
That Natasha and Albert
Have staying power
And I’ve grown to appreciate that!
