! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! A child's plea- for you, of you, to you! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !


Fog, fog, go away
Want to go out and play.

Please, Can’t bear the cold.
Am just six and a half years old.

Been waiting for hours and hours.
Nose pressed against the glass.

My feet are getting numb,
am feeling, oh, so glum.

Need the warmth of Sun,
And go out for some fun.

Mama makes me wear gloves,
Can’t feed the lovely dove.

Or else shall slip in bed
Read about the gingerbread.

But I want to feel gay,
And go out and play.

Please, please go away.
Come on a hot summer day.

Promise, shall let you stay.
All night and all through the day.


For Anika- my grand daughter

    A lovely child's song for a foggy day. Very
    wistful and poignant. I hope that Anika has
    her sunny day by now, And a warm hug from
    her grandmother.

    Love,

    fog or rain go away
    little anika wants to play...very cute rhymes
    for you, of you, to you...your sweet grand daughter
    must be a domestic democratic ruler (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
