I Took a Stroll

 

I took a stroll by the brook

And heard a swallow singing

I heard a baby bird saying

Peep, peep, peep; at the brook

 

I took a stroll in the woods

And heard a donkey braying

I heard a far dog barking

Woof, woof, woof; in the woods

 

I took a stroll down the lane

And saw a kitten eating

I saw her mother cleaning her

Lick, lick, lick; down the lane

 

I took a stroll by the mill

And heard the millwheel turning

I saw the big tall oak tree swaying

Swish, swish, swish; at the mill

 


 

I was twelve when I wrote this, Mom liked it

and sent it off to the Calvinist Contact (a weekly

published by the Christian Reformed Church) which

then printed it. I was some excited, I will tell you.
