Good Morning Merry Sunshine….

Good morning, merry Sunshine, how did you wake so soon?

You’ve scared the little stars away and shone away the moon.

I watched you go to bed last night, before I stopped my play…

How did you get way over there, and, pray, where did you stay?

I never go to sleep, my dear, I just go ’round to see

My little children of the East, who rise to watch for me.

I wake all the birds and bees, and flowers on my way…

Then last of all, the little child who stayed out late to play.

  4. Lovely sunshine yellow…… certainly know how to cheer us up……and I suspect that you might have written that charming rhyme Scott?……and a perfect combination.

    • I’m glad you enjoyed the photos and the words, John…but the rhyme isn’t an original of mine…I remember my wife saying it to our children when they were little…and she remembers her mother saying it to her when she was a little girl, as well…. Thank you.

  5. Beautiful and charming…. those two words don’t begin to do justice to both images and words, but they’re the best I can do.
