There is nothing like a hammock,
Kiki says while swinging back and forth
In the afternoon sun under the pear tree
Lucky you, I reply.
I have been spending all day at school
While you did nothing at all
Pish-posh, says Kiki.
Or would you say that
Counting strawberries is no maths?
And would you say that
Watching cloud pictures
Is no art lesson?
I want to reply something smart
But Kiki wiggles her ears
And eats another strawberry
Did you know, she then says,
That a bee needs to visit four million flowers
to fill three jars with honey?
Pish-posh, I say.
And then we listen to the flip-flip-flip of butterfly wings.
To the grasses.
To the summery breeze.
To the bees.
There is nothing like a hammock, I say.
Would you like to make your own hammock for your Kiki in the Meadow doll?
Tomorrow I´ll share a little tutorial with you, so stay tuned...
Until then, enjoy summer!
