Birthday Wishes to my sister Cindy!

Cindy is sassy and smart and big hearted and gifted!
She is a loving wife and mother and dedicated Kindergarten teacher.
Add to all of that she is a darling girl with a great sense of style...and she is funny to boot. (who says boot....must be a Wisconsin thing.)

Happy Birthday Cindy!
Miss you.
Love you.

Did you ever see such a perfect cake?

Enchanted Tulips and Other Verses for Children (1914): a machine-readable transcription
Keary, Maud

NIGHT like a coverlet is folded down
Upon the hills, and now the gentle trees
Rock in their arms the restless winds to sleep.
Cassiopeia, the Great Bear, and the Crown
Divide the sky with striding Hercules.
Her silent watch the pointed moon doth keep;
I, in my cosy bed, lie still and wonder
What makes the world turn round and stirs the thunder.


LET us try to be good and content,
Kind to each other,
Healthy and gentle and brave,
Obedient to Mother.

For of such were the heroes of old--
Patient in learning,
Seldom rude, seldom cross, never cruel,
From the truth never turning.


OUT in the morning Father goes,
Whether it pours with rain or snows,
Whether the wild wind beats and blows:--
By the fire sit Mother and I
Doing our lessons quietly.

Back in the twilight Father comes,
When I've finished with books and sums.
Not all the noise of all the drums
Is a jollier noise, I know,
Than Father when he says, "Hallo!"

This is my kind of poetry.
Children's poetry.
Poetry with pretty images.

The clouds are thundering...
It looks like rain.
Keep your fingers crossed!

Encourage one another,
