A Bright New Year

Do you remember when I posted in October about planting bulbs?  Here they are, sprouting bright and green...  

Wishing you a beautiful new year full of life, growth, beauty, and, as always, poetry --  These song lyrics below by Woody Guthrie seem to me the perfect words to describe the joy of new growth and life...

by Woody Guthrie

Grass grass grass,
tree tree tree,
leafy leaf leaf,
one two three.

Birdy birdy bird,
fly fly fly,
nest nest nest,
high high high.

Cloudy cloudy cloud,
wind wind wind,
rain rain rain,
mud mud mud.

Doggie doggie dog,
runny run run,
quickie quick quick,
homey home home

Beddy bed bed,
sheety sheet sheet,
sleepy sleep sleep,
dreamy dream dream.

Dancie dance dance,
singy sing sing,
grow grow grow,
biggy big big.


  1. Happy New Year! I received your sweet angel yesterday. THANK YOU! :-)

  2. Love this. I recognize it from Elizabeth Mitchell's tune. Your sprouts are beautiful.

  3. and may they bloom, big and beautiful like your dreams for this year! xx

  4. I hadn't stumbled across this song until now, but I love it! It makes me want to go find it so I can singy sing sing it to my kids. Happy new year!
