Monday's Child #51 The Pond

she waddled, waddled, waddled
and she fuddled, fuddled, fuddled
then said follow me
as she headed for the puddle

she pointed to the frog
she pointed to the turtle
she pointed to the puddle
that was growing by leaps and hurdles

the boy listened with his ears
the boy listened with his eyes
the boy listened to the duck
being so tall and wise

he said enjoy your new home
he said enjoy your summer swim
he said everyone enjoy
before winter comes again

so into the pond went the frog
into the pond went the turtle
into the pond went the ducks
as the boy did smile and did giggle

Oh, little fish

Illustration by: Carmen L. Browne 1917

Oh, little fish are you there
in the middle of the wide sea
that you fare?

Oh, little one will you grow
to be a great whale
iIwould like to how

Will you swim from shore
to far off land - and who will
be there to hold your hand?

Do you have a mom just like me
who will help you learn to swim
this big and mighty sea?

Return to the Highlands

It is time to return
to the Highlands Lass
It is time to make
our way home

We have been
to the Royal Wedding
A future King
who will take the throne

It is time to return
to the Highlands Lass
Kate was the
light of the town

Beauty that made
London shine
As all of Britain
watched on its grounds

It is time to return
to the Highlands Lass
my friend we have
shown our best

May Kate and Will
find joyous happiness
let us go Lass
now to the Highlands
and rest

The Royal Wedding

The Royal Wedding
it will
 soon be here, I must
iron my ribbon and curl up my hair
I must shine my waders
Yes, whiten my wings
I must be ready when
Winsminster Abbey church bells ring...
out the arrival of all
 the fine quests
 the Queen, Charles and Harry
all arriving with that
 Camille (family mess)

But not to worry
or not to pout
because there is love in the air
that London will shout
that will
light up all England
and all the Queensland's
when Prince William takes Kate
as his beautiful bride in
marriage and fair hand
