Mother Goose’s Lessons

Mother Goose tucked the children in

With all the rhyme

And some reason

She always had stories

Neatly hidden up her sleeve

In case, they needed to learn

To hear a moral

Captured in a ditty

All the children

Gathered at her feet

Wanting another character, another lesson

Delivered with caution and laughter

For she told them

This was her life

Colorful in character and plot

Sometimes the greatest lesson

Came from listening to elder’s tales

And understanding their perseverance and mistakes

So Mother Goose delivered them nightly

To eager boys and girls

Preparing for a good night’s sleep
