Blessings from Me to You


December 31, 2013 by WITS Editor


CARNIVAL!!! (Photo credit: thouston6)

May your sycamore tree grow hands.

May the sun heat your heart.

May your legs swing like a carnival.

May your house never be blue.

May the rain kiss your eyelids.

May starfish protect your dreams.

May music blossom into flowers.

May icicles hang like angels.

May you smell like white lace.

May you find an emerald ring.

May you catch the world in your hands.

May you sleep under the moon’s eye.

by Jennifer, 5th Grade
