Down the street
Around the bend
Up the Hill
Count to Ten.
Cross a stream
Jump a log
Pick a flower
Pat a dog.
Breathe the air
Feel the sun
Don't be shy,
You're having fun.
Climb a tree
Kick a stone
Walk a Fence,
You're on your own.
Roll in the grass
Find a swamp
Pick a catnip
Romp and stomp.
Down the hill
Around the bend
There's your street.
You're home again.
