Winter

November 27, 2007

 

 

Our topic for this session was winter. We all shared about the Thanksgiving celebrations that we had partaken of. Maiden told us how she and her daughter had helped to supply food for some needy children.

Then we begain to discuss winter. Snow angels, and snowballs...Maus was excited at being able to leave "perfect paw prints". The world clothed in purest white, and icicle prisims hanging from the trees.

Cricket recited a poem by Mary F. Butts.

Winter Nights
by Mary F.Butts

Blow, wind, blow!
Drift the flying snow!
Send it twirling, whirling overhead!
There's a bedroom in a tree,
Where, snug as snug can be,
The squirrel nests in his cozy bed.
Shriek, wind, shriek!
Make the branches creak!
Battle with the boughs till break o' day!
In a snow cave warm and tight,
Through the icy winter night,
The rabbit sleeps the peaceful hours away.
Call, wind, call,
In entry and in hall,
Straight from of the mountain white and wild!
Soft purrs the cat
On her fluffy mat,
And beside her nestles close her furry child.
Scold, wind, scold,
So bitter and so bold!
Shake the windows with your tap, tap, tap!
With half-shut, dreamy eyes
The drowsy baby lies,
Cuddled close in his mother's lap
the end

We also had a rather long poem by William Shakespeare which I had found in our library.

Group Poem
Winter is that time of year
When clouds build up in cold skies so clear
On the top of the mountain you can see many muses
scanning for hopeful talent to inspire
to see many people ski down
Down into a wonderland of snow!

Our topic this coming Tuesday shall be snow and winter sports. Please be sure to join us this coming Tuesday at Theatre View, 11:00am wat.
