APAD 6: Tell Me a Story

Tell Me a Story

Tell me a story of early mornings

of yawns and stretches

and cuddles in bed

 

Tell me a story of breakfasts

of porridge and honey

and banana coins

 

Tell me a story of being dressed

one hand, two, head

one foot, two feet, pop!

 

Tell me a story of yesterday’s rain

of slipping and slopping

in today’s puddles and mud

 

Tell me a story of walks in the park

of big open skies

and tiny leaf nibblers

 

Tell me a story of bath time

of splishing and splashing

and swirling and song

 

Tell me a story of bedtime

of tucked up tight

and when you were small

 

Tell me a story from morning til night

from bright to dark,

from start to the end

then tell me a story again.
