HOW MUCH WOOD

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck

If a woodchuck could chuck wood ?

He would chuck as much wood

As a woodchuck could chuck

If a woodchuck could chuck wood

ANNA ELISE

Anna Elise

She jumped with suprise

The suprise was so quick

It played her a trick

The trick was so rare

She jumped in a chair

The chair was so frail

She jumped in a pail

The pail was so wet

She jumped in a net

The net was so small

She jumped on a ball

The ball was so round

She jumped on the ground

And ever since then

She’s been turning aroun

BABIES DON’T WALK THEY RIDE

Babies don’t walk they ride !

Babies don’t run they glide!

Strolling in buggies and backpacks and slings

Rolling in trolleys and car seats and things

Bumping around all over the place

With a scowl or a howl or a smile on their face

Charging along like charioteers

Flying down hills and up in the air

Huggled and cuddled and carried along

If babies could talk they’d be singing this song

Babies don’t walk they ride !

I AM THE OCEAN

I am the ocean

Full of beauty and treasure

Powerful and strong

Travelling the shore

Leaving gifts

A washload of colours

In every shade and hue

Forever changing

Constantly moving

Rough and turbulent

Quiet and still

God created

God controlled

Deep

Unfathomable

Unable to control

Free

Enjoying the resources

Swimming with dolphins

Blue pure calm

Waiting and calling

Ignoring

Alive with life

Riding the wave

Love and tranquility

I am the ocean

Strong forever

JUNGLE SONG

Tiger tiger orange and black

He’s got stripes upon his back

When he growls sharp teeth I see

He’s as scary as can be

Tiger tiger orange and black

He’s got stripes upon his back

Elephant elephant large and grey

Swings his trunk along the way

His ears are big his tusks are white

Don’t be scared he does not bite

Elephant elephant large and grey

Swings his trunk along the way

Crocodile crocodile long and green

The sharpest teeth you’ve ever seen

His legs are short his mouth is wide

Get too close you’ll be inside

Crocodile crocodile long and green

The sharpest teeth you’ve ever seen

Giraffe giraffe so very tall

He spreads out his legs so he won’t fall

He eats leaves from the tops of the trees

His long neck helps him reach them with ease

Giraffe giraffe so very tall

He spreads out his legs so he won’t fall

Hippopotamus wallows and lies

In the mud right up to his eyes

Wallowing in the muddy pool

Keeps his skin so very cool

Hippopotamus wallow and lies

In the mud right up to his eyes

Lion lion mighty and strong

With a very loud roar and a mane so long

A lioness has no mane

A cub is a baby lion’s name

Lion lion mighty and strong

With a very loud roar and a mane so long

Tune: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

 

 

THE SUMMER DAY

Who made the world ?

Who made the swan and the black bear ?

Who made the grasshopper ?

The grasshopper I mean

The one who who has flung herself out of the grass

The one who is eating out of my hand

Who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down

Who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes

Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face

Now she snaps her wings open and floats away

I don’t know exactly what a prayer is

I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down

Into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass

How to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields

Which is what I have been doing all day

Tell me what else should I have done ?

Doesn’t everything die at last and too soon ?

Tell me what it is you plan to do

With your one wild  precious life ?
