B is for beach, barn, basket and bee
For bell, beak, and boats in the sea

B is for biscuit, bike, and ball
For beads and bake and a blue painted wall

B is for bear, beaver, and balance beam, 
for beaker, blanket, and blueberries and cream

B is the song of a bassoon, a blooming
begonia, a bubble, and a bunch of balloons

B is the bed that I sleep in and rest
B helps me believe I can be at my best

Green Tree Leaves

Do you see the green tree leaves? 
Or the flowers on a plant? 

How many birds outside do you see? 
Can you find an ant? 

There are so many things outside to see 
There are so many things to find

And if you're not outside looking at it,
do you see it in your mind?

Yarn for weaving
Yarn for your head
Yarn for a scarf
Yarn in your bed 

Yarn keeps you warm when it's cold out
So get out the yarn when you're in doubt 

The yarn above is "Snakes on the Skein Speckles" from Haynes House Yarns. See for more hand dyed yarn!

I like chapstick
It's good for your skin
It looks shiny when you grin
The smell is often kind of sweet 

but it's not a good snack for you to eat

Talking to yourself

When you talk to yourself,
you can tell lots of stories

You can talk about any topics
or categories

If you get annoyed you can
just stop

You can always hear what you're
saying, no need to eavesdrop

There's no worries of judgement
of how much you care

and if you need to be by yourself
you'll always be there

On the TV there's lots of stories
and many channels and categories
Some are about cooking
and some feature sports
and you can watch some news reports

Stalagmites in a cave

There are stalagmites in a cave,
seashells in the sea,
grasses in a meadow,
and a bird's nest in a tree

There's paperclips in a drawer,
magazines on a shelf,
pretzels in a cabinet
Where are you yourself?

Cats don't wear sandals

Cats don't wear sandals
bears don't wear socks
cows don't wear shorts
and neither do hawks

lizards don't wear glasses
and snakes don't wear gloves
mice don't wear jackets
and neither do doves

If your feet are cold

If your feet are cold, it helps to put on socks
if your picnic is blowing away, go and find some rocks
if the curtains won't stay open, use a rubber band
if you can't find a bowl for snacks, pour them in your hand
