One Two

One, Two
Daddy caught a flu
Three, Four
Mommy locked the door
Five, Six
Doggie learnt new tricks
Seven, Eight
My dinner's late
Nine, Ten
Nappy change again
One, Two
Now, what shall I do?
Three, Four
Want to pee some more
Five, Six
Burps and farts do mix
Seven, Eight
Biscuits I ate
Nine, Ten
Nappy change again
One, Two
My fingers I chew
Three, Four
I crawled on the floor
Five, Six
Bathtub, Granny fix
Seven, Eight
My milk, I wait
Nine, Ten
Nappy change again
One, Two
Daddy caught a flu
Three, Four
Seven days and more ...
Bottom of Form


Time and Art

Time is but the ropes in ring of life we play. 
Art is the skill we use as we heroically play.
Win or defeated within time, we stay.
Leaving our trophies, soon our valiant corpses lay. 
May our skills provide the next players a way. 
In them, our value, others may gratefully say. 
We are all blessed the time our first cry that day.
