Poem 62 – I’ll Catch You Anything You Need (song lyrics)

Standard

I’ll Catch You Anything You Need (song lyrics)

 

Caught you a moonbeam as it shined out through the night

Caught you a sunbeam as it sparkled through the trees

Caught you a raindrop as it fell down from the sky

I’ll catch you anything you need

 

Anything you need to be happy

Anything you need to be happy

 

Caught you a wave from the oceans blue and deep

Caught you a sea-breeze as it passed me peacefully

Caught you a pearl just as perfect as can be

I’ll catch you anything you need

 

Anything you need to be happy

Anything you need to be happy

 

Caught you a flower from the field grown tall and still

Caught you an oak tree as its leaves were growing green

Caught you an apple as it rolled on down the hill

I’ll catch you anything you need

 

Anything you need to be happy

Anything you need to be happy

 

Caught you a songbird as it sang for you and me

Caught you a rainbow and all that lived between

Caught you the mountains, the forests and the sea

I’ll catch you anything you need

 

Anything you need to be happy

Anything you need to be happy

Poem 58 – “Popsicles

Standard

“Popsicles” by Jaymie Gerard

 

Popsicles!

Ice popsicles

Are hanging from

My windowsill!

But it’s a trick!

For if I lick

I’m certain that

My tongue would stick!

Poem 50 – “My Daddy Mows”

Standard

“My Daddy Mows” by Jaymie Gerard

 

When the grass grows

My daddy mows

He mows and mows

In perfect rows

He mows as summer

Comes and goes

And through the autumn

Highs and lows

My daddy mows

And mows and mows

And only stops

Because it snows

Day 44 – “If You Were a Tree”

Standard

“If You Were a Tree” by Jaymie Gerard

 

If you were a tree

If you were a tree

What kind of tree

Would you be?

 

An Adler, an Ash, an Apple, a Beech?

A Birch, Boxelder, maybe a Buckwheat?

 

A Cedar, a Cherry?

A Chinaberry?

 

Crabapple, an Elm, or a Fir?

A Hickory, Hemlock, or Juniper?

 

Magnolia, Maple?

An Oak? A Palm?

A Peach? A Pear?

A Pine? A Plum?

 

A Poplar? A Redbud?

A Giant Redwood?

 

Sassafras? Sumac?

Sycamore? Spruce?

Walnut? Willow?

Which would you choose?

 

If you were a tree

If you were a tree

What kind of tree

Would you be?

 

Day 35 – “Summer’s Coming to an End”

Standard

“Summer’s Coming to an End” by Jaymie Gerard

 

Summer’s coming to an end

September’s waiting ‘round the bend

Once warm weather turns to cool

Just in time for starting school

Putting on our longer sleeves

Jumping into piles of leaves

Colors turn from green to gold

As the new season unfolds

Day 34 – “The Storm”

Standard

“The Storm” by Jaymie Gerard

 

Before the storm

The sky turns gray

The clouds roll in

The sun tucks away

 

During the storm

The strong wind blows

The sky is wild

The rainwater flows

 

After the storm

The clouds say “adieu”

The sun peeks back out

The sky turns to blue
