by Katrina Lybbert
came the rain one wet stormy night,
It fell down so heavily it gave me a fright!
elephants dancing up there on my roof?
Or maybe wild horses banging each hoof?
suddenly it stopped, just as fast as it came,
And I snuggled back into my bed once again.

It's Raining, It's
Singing in the Rain

The nursery rhyme this week is Doctor Foster. Recite often!
Foster went to Glo'ster,
In a shower of rain;
He stepped in a puddle, up to his middle,
And never went there again.
