|Picking elderberries and watching the lily pond
|Then she did send me to pick elderberries. She did tell me to scoot up the tree in a hurry. I did so. When I was up in the tree, I did not hurry so to get the berries. I took looks about. I looked to the
and away to the
. Then I sat on another limb and
more near. I did watch the little pond. In the pond is a lily. The lily is a yellow lily and it floats upon the water. It does float upon the water like a little sky-star. Maybe it was a little one that did have
to cuddle in among the raindrops that do come together in the pond. I wonder how it came to be. I would like to know.
