    And biting two buttons off Jeremy's shirt.

  4. Story Telling

    Most every night when they're in bed,

    Underneath my outside face

  7. My Shadow

    I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
    And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.

  8. The Rainbow

    Boats sail on the rivers,

    How good to lie a little while
    And look up through the tree!
    The Sky is like a kind big smile
    Bent sweetly over me.

    Have you ever heard of the Sugar-Plum Tree?

  12. Bed In Summer

    In Winter I get up at night
    And dress by yellow candle light.
    In Summer, quite the other way,
    I have to go to bed by day.

    Up in the air so blue?
