come and sit awhile

 
Come in and sit and I'll tell you a little story about a very sad chair.
 
This is the chair that sits by the phone in a doorway.
This is the chair that everyone sits on when they are on the phone .
This is the chair that everyone sits on to have a quick chat
when they aren't staying for long .
 
 
This is the chair that everyone puts their phone , wallet or hat on
while they quickly duck into the bathroom .
This is also the chair that people put their phone , wallet , hat , schoolbag
and lots of other things on so they don't forget their things
on their way out .
This is the chair that people sit on when they are really grubby.
 
 
This the chair now .
 
 
This is chair that will be admired .
 
 
This is the chair that will never be taken for granted again.

I love that you love your chair! I would like to recommend a children's book...."Hilda's Restful Chair." You will enjoy it!
