would you....

would you
build me a tree house
with funny crooked windows
to play in
~~
would you
help me look for fairy footprints
under the fallen leaves
~~
would you
come looking for me
if I wanted to play hide and seek
~~
would you
hold my secrets gently in your heart
if I whispered them in your ear
~~
would you
push me on the park swing
until my feet touch the sky
~~
would you
paddle the canoe
so I could just sit and watch the clouds go by
~~
would you
carry my sled to the top of the snowy hill
so
I could slide back down again
~~
you would
?
I would
too

  9. Beautiful Beth...

    I wish it was a canoe day today - that one really got me, you know how the water trickles off the paddle and swirls back into the big as you go slow...You watch the clouds, I will watch the water and what a moment we will have...

    Love to you...
