GEE! I THOUGHT I WAS BUSY
My feet run to the bus stop in the morning
When I'm late.
They leap to lunch in the afternoon because
They know they are getting a break.
At night they tip-toe to
get my midnight snack.

THE NORTH STAR
I wish I could touch the North Star
And play with it all night
We could sing a song together
Read stories and say good night.

THANK YOU GRANDMA
My mother may give me love,
But it was my Grandma who taught her to give love.
My mother may teach me right from wrong,
But it was my Grandma who taught her right from wrong.
My mother might give me knowledge,
but it was my Grandma who gave her knowledge.
If my Grandma wasn't a good mother,
then I would not have a good mother.
So I'd like to thank you Grandma,
Thank you very much!
Thank you for all your gifts,
both material and spiritual.
Thank you for the love you give,
and share with all of us.

One day I went on a picnic.
I thought I saw an ant.
He was jumping into my basket.
And I told him that he can't.
He jumped right out.
He ran away
And I didn't see him
Until the very next day.
