There once was a farmer
who took a young miss
in back of the barn
where he gave her a. . .
lecture on horses and chickens and eggs
and told her that she had such beautiful. . .
manners that suited a girl of her charms
one that he wanted to take in his. . .
washing and ironing and then if she did,
they would get married and raise lots of. . .
Sweet Violets! Sweeter than all the roses!
Covered all over from head to toe,
covered all over with sweet violets.
(an old song I sing to my children and, when I can, in three parts with my mother and sister; do you know it?)
Hopefully Genevieve will sing that song for "entertainment" tonight at Ben's birthday party: he's 2 today! It's a perfect spring day. I'll have a full party report tomorrow.
