When the Rose Room Children arrived at Kindy, on a chilly Autumn morn
There was a surprise, to greet their eyes
Waiting by the door.
A little parcel, and a note
Wrapped in paper bark & jute
And as Emily reads ‘Gnomish’
We discovered it was from our garden Gnome, dear old crooked root.
We excitedly discovered, the gift of warmth inside
Lovely cotton singlets,
‘To keep us warm’, the children cried.
But there were more surprises to be found, and to the children’s delight
We then discovered nature’s colours
Reds & greens & golden bright.
And so, with busy hands and happy hearts, we made our nature dyes
And our singlets became rainbows
Right before our eyes.
We thank the plants and Mother Earth, for all her colours rosy
And dear old crooked root the gnome
For helping keep us cosy
Much love from Rose Room Kindy
