"I Did Nothing Today"
When children come home at the end of the day
The question they're asked as they run out to play
Is "Tell me, what did you do today?"
And the answer they give makes you sigh with dismay
"Nothing, I did nothing today!"
Perhaps "Nothing" means that I read a book,
Or....with a directress I learned how to cook.
Maybe I painted a picture of blue,
Or heard a story about a mouse that flew.
Maybe I wrote in my journal myself,
Or found a great book on the library shelf.
Maybe I helped a friend today,
Or went to my favorite area alone.
Maybe today was the very first time,
That my scissors followed a very straight line.
Maybe I sang a song to the end,
Or worked with a special, brand new friend.
When you're three, four, or five your heart has wings
And "Nothing" can mean so many things!
