Little Brown Bulb
( Published Wynstones Press )
spoken
A little brown bulb was asleep in the ground,
in his little brown nightie not making a sound.
King winter, he roared and he raged overhead
But the little brown bulb stayed asleep in his bed
Lady spring came tiptoeing over the leaves
Fingers to lips as soft as can be
The little brown bulb just lifted its head,
took off its nightie and jumped out of bed.

My Lady Spring
My C lady Spring is F dressed in C green,
She C wears a F primrose C crown.

My C lady spring, my F lady C Spring.

Jack Frost
spoken
Look out! Look out! Jack Frost is about.
He’s after your fingers and toes.
And all through the night,
The gay little sprite is working where nobody knows.
He’ll climb the trees, so nimble, is he.
His silvery powder he’ll shake,
And whilst you’re asleep,to windows he’ll creep
Such beautiful pictures he’ll make
He’ll cross the grass, and merrily pass
And turn all your greenness to white,
Then home he will go and laugh “Ho! Ho! Ho!
What fun I have had in the night.

C Ding a ling a ling
G7 Here comes C spring.
