Summer - Mermaids, Mushrooms and More.


It's high summer.  For many it means a more relaxed schedule and time on the beaches.

Offerings from shops on the Waldorf on Etsy team are accompanied by links to summer songs  on You Tube.  What comes to mind when you think of a summer themed song?  Let me know in the comment section.

I Know a Little Pussy

-Traditional

I know a little pussy,
Her coat is silver grey,
She lives down in the meadow,
Not very far away.
She'll always be a pussy,
She’ll never be a cat,
For she’s a pussy willow,
Now what do you think of that?
Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow… SCAT!

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough. ~Rabindranath Tagore


May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
~Irish blessing


Butterflies are self propelled flowers. ~R.H. Heinlein


If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies. ~Author unknown


The caterpillar does all the work but the butterfly gets all the publicity. ~Attributed to George Carlin

Little Bird


-Traditional Nursery Rhyme

I saw a little bird go hop, hop, hop
So I said to the bird, won’t you stop, stop, stop
And was going to the window, to say how do you do,
When he shook his little tail, and far away he flew.






Sunflower Wool Art, Finland, Evgenia Kulikova

Loveliest of Trees, the Cherry Now

-AE Housman


LOVELIEST of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.

Now, of my threescore years and ten, 5
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy springs a score,
It only leaves me fifty more.

And since to look at things in bloom
Fifty springs are little room, 10
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.

The Mushroom is the Elf of Plants 

-Emily Dickinson

At Evening, it is not --
At Morning, in a Truffled Hut
It stop upon a Spot 

And yet its whole Career
As if it tarried always
Is shorter than a Snake's Delay 
And fleeter than a Tare --

'Tis Vegetation's Juggler --
The Germ of Alibi --
Doth like a Bubble antedate
And like a Bubble, hie -- 

I feel as if the Grass was pleased
Of Summer's circumspect.
To have it intermit --
This surreptitious scion

Had Nature any supple Face
Or could she one contemn --
Had Nature an Apostate --
That Mushroom -- it is Him!

Blue Skies

-Irving Berlin

Blue skies, smilin' at me
Nothin' but blues skies do I see
Bluebirds singing a song
Nothin' but bluebirds all day long
Never saw the sun shinin' so bright
Never saw things lookin' so right
Noticin' the days hurryin' by
When you're in love, my how they fly
Blue days, all of them gone
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
Never saw the sun shinin' so bright
Never saw things lookin' so right
Noticin' the days hurryin' by
When you're in love, oh how they fly

Spring Items from Waldorf on Etsy

We have not had much of springtime weather here in New England.  It's just gotten warm enough to go out without a coat sometimes.  This week the trees have leafed out and the garden perennials are taller.

Here is a selection of spring items from Waldorf inspired shops around the world.  Click on any link and pay a visit!  Each listing is paired with a song or poem, many taken from Spring Poems, Songs and Stories from Wynstone Press.  Enjoy them!

I would be happy to see any requests for blog content in the comments, thanks  -Karen Traversy

Felted Tree Nest Play Mat Waldorf Nature Season Table Landscape tree fox bird gnome snowdrop sprout

Felted Tree Nest Play Mat Waldorf Nature Season Table Landscape tree fox bird gnome snowdrop sprout


"The Fox"

-traditional

The Fox went out on a chilly night 
He prayed for the moon to give him light 
For he had many a mile to go that night 
Before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o 
He had many a mile to go that night 
Before he reached the town-o 

He ran till he came to the farmers pen 
The ducks and the geese were kept therein 
He said a couple of you are gonna grease my chin 
Before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-o 
A couple of you are gonna grease my chin 
Before I leave this town-o 

He grabbed the great goose by the neck 
He threw a duck across his back 
And he didn't mind the quack, quack 
And the legs all danglin' down-o, down-o, down-o 
He didn't mind the quack, quack 
And the legs all danglin' down-o 

Well the old gray Woman jumped out of bed 
Out of the window she popped her head 
Cryin' John, John the great goose is gone 
The Fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o 
John, John the great goose is gone 
And the Fox is on the town-o 

He ran till he came to his nice warm den 
And there were the little ones 8, 9, 10 
Sayin' Daddy, Daddy better go back again 
It must be a mighty fine town-o, town-o, town-o 
Daddy, Daddy go back again 
For it must be a mighty fine town-o 

The Fox and his Wife, without any strife 
They cut up the goose with a fork and a knife 
And they never had such a supper in their life 
And the little ones chewed on the bones-o, bones-o, bones-o 
They never had such a supper in their life 
And the little ones chewed on the bones

I Have Seen a Mother Bird

-Thompson and Koteen

I have heard a mother bird, singing in the rain,
Telling all her little ones, Spring has come again!

I have seen a wave of green, down a lovely lane,
Making all the hedges glad, Spring has come again!

I have found a patch of ground, golden in the sun,
Crocuses are calling out: Spring just begun!

she wears a primrose crown..
and little baby buds and twigs are clinging to her gown...


The sun shines if she laughs at all,
and if she weeps, the raindrops fall,

Caterpillar


Fuzzy, wuzzy, creepy crawly
Caterpillar funny
You will be a butterfly
When the days are sunny.

Wiggling, flinging, dancing, springing
Butterfly so yellow,
You were once a caterpillar,
Wriggly, wiggly, fellow.

The Hare

See the littler hare so fast asleep, fast asleep
Little hare, oh are you ill,
That you lie so quiet and still?
Hop little hare, hop little hare
Hop any where.

White Coral Bells

-traditional

White choral bells
Upon a slender stalk 
Lilies of the valley deck my garden walk
Oh, don't you wish that you might hear them ring?
That will happen only when the fairies sing.
