About the poem and Mother Goose Day today!!!!

Today is Mother Goose Day!  My favorite is the Wise Old Owl.

I think I shared this last year and I know this is silly but while eating lunch and thumbing through a calender for amusement, I saw that today was Mother Goose Day.

The Wise Old Owl

A Wise Old Owl sat in an oak
The more he heard; the less he spoke.
The less he spoke, the more he heard
Why aren't we all like that Wise Old Bird?

I honestly want to use this in a sampler one day and have had it in my scribbles of portfolio for a long time.

And also I did find the info on the poem The Weaver here:

and it will give you the author and a little info about it. It certainly is interesting especially for any stitcher to relate to. It would make a lovely sampler verse. I believe there is a copyright on it though....would have to look into that.  I love poetry too! 

Thank you for the lovely comments! I do so enjoy reading them and they are the brightest spot of my day.

Hope your Sunday is going well. Had a good lunch at Nacoochee Grill in Sautee, Ga. A lovely French country salad, a glass of wine, and wheat bread. Very soothing, so much that I napped when I got home! ;)

Now to conquer one more load of laundry........
