Just a little something that I found, written by me about Sister bear when she was just a baby....
hello rain, goodbye christmas..
woke up this morning by a sweet little voice, urging me to sing nectareous songs. i swooped up my slippers and my gentle little bundle and we sat in our rocker, on the back porch, watching raindrops kiss the blades of grass, slowly turning them back to assorted shades of green. i broke out into song...
"it's raining, it's pouring
the old man is snoring
he went to bed and he bumped his head
and he couldn't get up in the morning"
looking up past the trees we captured some birdies singing, chirping and dancing on an electrical wire. their performance was outstanding, we applauded and smiled and hurrah'd for an encore. they shyed away and flew on to another neighborhood still innocent of their company. i broke out into song..
"bye bye birdie
i'm gonna miss you
so bye bye birdie,
why'd you have to go?
no more sunshine,
it's followed you away
i'll cry birdie"
the christmas music that we majestically listened to for the past three weeks has now withdrawn and we welcome the rain for it's message tells us, it's time to sing a new season..
a green-and-yellow basket
i bought a basket for my mommie
on the way I dropped it i dropped it,
I dropped it yes, on the way I dropped it
a little girlie picked it up
and took it to the market.."
mornings with my daughter are the best.
