Poetry Friday: An Acorn, a Japanese Song

amigurumi acorns by planetjune

Isn't this the cutest? It's an original from PlanetJune and I thought it went well with today's rhyme. You can get the pattern over at her site!

Thanks to Mama Lisa for this song from Japan. Now, introduce your totz to an unusual acorn.

An Acorn

An acorn rolled down and down,
He suddenly fell into a pond.
Then came the loaches*,
Hi boy! Come play with us!

The acorn enjoyed playing with them.
But he soon began to cry,
I want to go back to the mountain.
The loaches didn't know what to do.

*A loach is a freshwater carp!
