Punctual Snow

 

Here's a little spring verse, set to motions and music for the young and the young at heart. Words by Emily Dickinson tune by Nancy Nash-- (But you can make up or borrow your own if you don't know ours):

 

New feet withing my garden go (marching)

New fingers stir the sod (kneading fingers)

A troubadour upon the elm betrays the solitude (hands to mouth, calling)

New children play upon the green ( hands gently patting little heads)

New weary sleep below (hands to side of face like sleeping)

And still the pensive spring returns ( "The Thinker" pose)

And still the punctual snow! (shovel motion)
