I have gathered and created a few things to add to the assemblage, and the one I like the best is a "post office" where kids can leave little notes, hopefully it will be finished soon.
After everyone has worked their magic, I will take some photos to share.
Here's a bit of verse from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. (Midsummer, also known as the summer solstice, is almost upon us!)
Through the house give glimmering light,
By the dead and drowsy fire:
Every elf and fairy sprite
Hop as light as bird from brier;
And this ditty, after me,
Sing, and dance it trippingly.
First, rehearse your song by rote,
To each word a warbling note;
Hand in hand, with fairy grace,
Will we sing, and bless this place.
This verse has been set to music by New Hampshire's own Amy Beach! There are several renditions available on YouTube. I like this one for it's lilting quality.
Please stop by Carol's Corner for this week's Round-Up. Next week the Round-Up will be here!
