May Poem

Young girl playing with cloth "sails"


Come and sing with us.

Come and dance with us.

Come, let us toss you in a ring.



and we scream like tree bears.

We climb trees

and hang down from the limbs like bats.


We sit beside anthills

counting the ants as they pass in and out.


Come then, and share with us

the happy things we do.

Come and share all the happy games we play,
