Nature's Ways of Life
Age Rating: 1 +
Nature's ways of life keep things nice and warm.
The owl hoots. The deer prance in the snow.
Squirrels climb trees. Life is wonderful!
Spring flowers bloom and trees grow.
Fish are born. Water rushing. Frogs spawn.
Grass grows. Leaves blow. In the fields,
Corn grows. Birds fly, mate, and sing
In the beautiful breeze. Water splashes
Around the rocks, waves crash, and stars dance
In the moonlight. Acorns fall. Butterflies
Fly in the sunlight. Wonderful things
Happen in the morn. Everything around you--
Up and through the trees, and out in the park--
Is a world you never heard of. We love spring!
* Christopher, my 6 and three-quarter year-old son, composed this, after spending an impromptu outing with me-- his Dad-- in a park near our home. As he has yet to learn how to write, he requested that I transcribe his words on paper for him. The format is mine, but the word choice, diction, and syntax are his. He is excited to see if it earns any stars, as his sister did last year!
