Tree, trunk, branch, crown
Climbing up and sitting down
Morning sun becomes noon-blue
All the world is old and new
Road, street, track, path
Ship, boat, wooden raft
Nest, bird, feather, fly
All the world has got its sky
Spreading shadows, setting sun
Crickets, curtains, day is done
A fire takes away the chill
All the world can hold quite still

  - All the World, Liz Garton Scanlon, illustrated by Marla Frazee

Beautiful homespun poem, and my favorite book to read to Brooke, bar none. Happy Fathers Day.
