PAD Challenge Day #18

I have fallen a little behind in the challenge, but according to the rules I have until the end of the month to catch up, so here is my day 18 post. I will catch up on today's prompt and get back on track tomorrow. :-)

The Speaker

She spoke in quiet tones
and delicately explained
the intricacies of her day.
She talked of working
the earth, of housework
performed and even of
a musical interlude which
she had allowed herself.
Throughout, her listener
seemed most disinterested
but she did not appear
at all offended.
And when, at last, the
ladybug flew away,
she laughed to watch
it go and then returned
to her sandbox play.
