I went to see some friends today
Who have a lovely pool –
The day was hot and sweltering;
The pool, though, very cool –

I floated on my back awhile,
And laughed with my old friends;
Then hurried to get back down to town
For work – it never ends –

To overwork is baneful,
I don’t need to be a fool;
So soon, I hope to go back there
And hang out at
The pool
