A blog for kids (and their parents) who love books, words, and dreaming big...
I'm so glad you stopped by! Welcome.

Ben's May Day basket for his teacher,
May 2012


Let us take our baskets early
To the meadows green,
While the wild-flowers still are pearly
With the dewdrops' sheen. 

Fill them full of blossoms rosy,
Violets and gay 

Cowslips, every pretty posy
Welcoming the May. 

Then our lovely loads we'll carry
Down the village street, 
On each door, with laughter merry,
Hang a basket sweet.

Hey-a-day-day! It is spring now,
Lazy folks, awake!
See the pretty things we bring now
For the May-day's sake!

~ Evaleen Stein

Happy May Day, everyone!
