mother goose waits patiently on a rock in the river
luckily she has lots of stories to tell until baby’s big enough to swim.
“rock and roll is music, and why should music contribute to…juvenile delinquency?
if people are going to be juvenile delinquents,
they’re going to be delinquents if the hear… mother goose rhymes.”
huron river, argo park, ann arbor, michigan, usa – spring 2021
“read to your children all of the time
novels and nursery rhymes
autobiographies, even the newspaper
it doesn’t matter; it’s quality time
because once upon a time
we grew up on stories in the voices in which they were told
we need words to hold us and the world to behold us
for us to truly know our souls.”
in honor of world nursery rhyme week
