a child's garden

Today the girls decided to play dress-up. They asked for me to put on tinkly music. We don't really have tinkly music so I put in one of my favorite children's cds it is a child's garden of song by Ted Jacobs and it is all musical renditions of poems by Robert Louis Stephenson.

I think I will save my favorite for another day. Here is another.

all night long, and every night
when my mamma puts out the light
i see the people marching by
as plain as day, before my eye

armies and emperors and kings
all carrying different kinds of things
and marching in so grand away,
you never saw the like by day.

so fine a show was never seen
at the great circus on the green;
for every kind of beast an man
is marching in that caravan.

at first they move a little slow,
but still the faster on they go,
and still beside them close i keep
until we reach the town of sleep.

I like that you can see DQ's artwork on the left and I think you can laugh at the fact that while all the rest of the Christmas decorations are put away, the nativities are still on the mantle and you can see some of them above and to the right.
