Poetry in Motion (Bring back a Memory?)

A favorite poem from childhood.
From The Tall Book of Make Believe

Three thoughtful people made me feel this way today~
just in time for the weekend.

Gee, I still want hair like this, so many years later!

I love how you can scan things now and share them - Voila! A poem and picture. A book from my childhood to share, so much fun - just making me see the mermaid's face brings back so many great memories. Because of this book, this poem, we only had
Chicken of the Sea tuna at my house ~ Only mermaid tuna (and I didn't even eat tuna back then!) boy, did I have a patient Grandma!

Do you have a favorite poem, a favorite poet ~
or a favorite children's book from your childhood?

I'd love to hear from you...

and thank you Dona, Mindii and Shannon
for making my day turn around on a dime.

From Dona!

Aren't they precious?

From Mindii and Shannon!
I already snuck over to Shann's and found out
(Alan told me to Shann...)

Oooh, how she sparkles ~ that Shabby Darlin'
I was Double-Sparkled!

Like usual, I turn around and it's just waiting there for me

Believing in Angels,
but seeing none

he borrows their wings instead
And walks out to meet his
Saving Grace
at the end of the road

Happy Weekend!
xoxo, Tracie
or Tracie Rickman (for you Shann!)

Here you go Coll~ Start Your Weekend off With a Smile!
He wants to reside on your blog for a while!

thanks for all the support and caring, it really means a lot to me. I had a fear that the situation in my country may escalate, and somehow it did. If you watched the news many ugly things happened. I would hate for people to think that "we Serbs" are savages and killers... like we were described in the past.
Thanks again for caring!
Oh, I liked the little mermaid. It is amazing how a small thing can bring back so many memories.



Alan Rickman, WooHoo. There is another woman in the world who adores him!
Hello, I'm Shann's Mum.

Hi Tracie,

I do have a favorite childhood book and it is "The Little Ballerina". I found it on eBay and as soon as I opened it the memories came flooding. I am keeping it for the granddaughter I hope to have someday. In fact, I am collecting a few books and starting a Nana's Book Basket. My daughter is 24, married but as of yet no children...someday!! Love the sparkly award.
