Poetry and stories for children.

These verses are from the poem Spring by William Blake. The full poem goes like this:

Sound the flute!
Now it’s mute.
Birds delight
Day and night;
Nightingale
In the dale,
Lark in sky,
Merrily,
Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year.
Little boy,
Full of joy;
Little girl,
Sweet and small;
Cock does crow,
So do you;
Merry voice,
Infant noise,
Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year.
Little lamb,
Here I am;
Come and lick
My white neck;
Let me pull
Your soft wool;
Let me kiss
Your soft face;
Merrily, merrily, we welcome in the year.

We are now officially in Summer and half the year has passed by. I like to think of July as a moment to reflect on what we have done and what we can still do. There is still time to “Merrily, merrily, we welcome in the year”. And even if your year’s resolutions are small, you can always make them extraordinary by always giving your best. Have a lovely weekend everybody!
