There once was an ugly yellow and blue house…

so we painted it !Still, it looked so lonely,

so we grew some friends.

The friends grew so much

that we almost missed the ill wind that began to blow.

It blew and swirled with unrest and sometimes stopped,

so we thought things would continue to grow,

but I said that I must have a way to let this ill wind go through

so that it wouldn’t touch us so.

We cut a door and built a roof and slid with the fun of the new wind,

while we grew new friends to live close to the house for the princess

and as the wind blew by we jumped for joy

with the strawberries and the apples and the birds came, too.

and things looked good, but the ill wind still blew

and we knew it was time

for us to simply say,

Goodbye.
