My Family’s Backyard Pastime
I like to find a spot to lay
upon the ground both night and day.
I like to see what's in the sky,
imagine things and wonder why.
You see the sun? It beams for me.
It makes me feel so warm, you see,
The moon, it gives me lots of hugs,
and when it comes, so do the bugs.
The fireflies are so fun to see
when Mr. Moon shines down on me.
The stars are like my steps of light.
They twinkle 'cause they're very bright.
The rainbows are the best of all.
I wonder why they never fall.
I sometimes see bright colored lights,
that move through space, it's quite a sight.
I watch the clouds as they change form.
The bigger ones come 'fore the storm.
When nature shows her very best,
her colors make me feel so blessed.
I listen to the leaves at play,
their rust'ling always makes my day.
Come lay with me and watch the sky,
there's planes and birds that will pass by.
There's always something new to see,
so come take time to gaze with me.
