Marvin: Sweater-Wearing Donkey

Marvin was on his way to have tea with Mabel.
And he was wearing a grand, new sweater.
'Twould be a find day, indeed!

Monkey Monkey Moo!

Monkey Monkey Moo!
Shall we buy a few?
Yellow monkeys,
Purple monkeys,
Monkeys red and blue.

Be a monkey, do!
Who's a monkey, who?
He's a monkey,
She's a monkey,
You're a monkey, too!

-1949, Marion Edey and Dorothy Grider

When my daughter was about 6 or 7,
we memorized this poem together.
'Twas fun!

misses his kids
loves the franciscan renewal center's grounds
is always thinking of the country...
