I try to make the Moments count; each and every one of them.
but, oftentimes, they are an unruly lot, skilled in mayhem and the art of teasing me most mercilessly.
If you will step in to my parlour … I promise not to be mean like the Spider to the Fly
…and I will instruct you in the shenanigans of my misbehaving Moments.
Let’s begin…pay close attention!
Ten, nine, what’s your line?
Do you get the picture? Perhaps the lesson to be learned here is that I should LET the Moments count. Much more fun, all round, than trying to MAKE them count : ).
If you would like to read the true story of this rhyme ,”One, two, buckle my shoe “, that my Moments and I have toyed with, take some time and enjoy a look through one of my very first books, a Collins Rainbow Colour Book, dated about 1950, illustrated by E.W.B, author unknown.
[E.W.B appears to have done quite a lot of work for Collins but I don’t know who E.W.B is. If anyone has any information on the illustrator E.W.B. I would love to hear it :).]
