Planting Circle

In the springtime garden, rosy morning glow,
Sunshine calling, falling, calling
Seedling wake and grow…

Good Morning I’m Peter
The farmer am I.
The days dawn so sweetly
The sun is in the sky.
The sheep are calling
The cows do too
Come now to the farm
I’ll show you what to do.

Hurray, hurray, we’ll work today. Hurray,hurray,we’ll work today
We’ll dig and dig and help things grow
Hurray, hurray, we’ll work today

Come and dig in the garden, Come and dig in the garden
We’ll put out the weeds, We’ll put out the weeds
Oh my! But this weed is enormous indeed!
We’ll pick the sweet grass
To feed the young sheep
And then we can watch them
to dance and leap.

Hurray, hurray, we’ll work today. Hurray, hurray, we’ll work today
We’ll sow and sow and help things grow
Hurray, hurray, we’ll work today.

Here is a bag of seeds
To sow along
Carry it with care
You must be strong

Dig a little hole
Plant a little seed
Pour a little water
Pull a little weed.

And now we sown our seeds
Let us help them grow.
Sister Rain flow
Brother Wind blow
Father Sun glow
Help Mother Earth the seeds to grow

A little brown bulb went to sleep in the ground
In his little brown nightie he slept very sound
Old winter roared and he raged overhead
But the little brown bulb did not move in his bed
But when Spring came tiptoeing over his head
with fingers to lips as soft as can be
The little brown bulb just lifted his head
Slipped off his nightie and jumped out of bed.

Hurray, hurray, we’ll work today. Hurray, hurray, we’ll work today
We’ll feed the animals everyday
Hurray, hurray, we’ll work today.

Take some corn and take some wheat
Let’s feed the chickens…they are so sweet!

We feed the chickens everyday, singing as we go
We gather up the eggs they lay, singing as we go
And off we go to market, off we go to market
Singing as we go, singing as we go…

We pick the flowers one by one, singing as we go
We place them on the baskets beds, singing as we go
And off we go to market, off we go to market
Singing as we go, singing as we go

We plant the carrots in the ground, singing as we go
We pull them, they are orange and long, singing as we go
And off we go to market, off we go to market
Singing as we go, singing as we go

And now the seeds are planted and the animals are fed
So dear children is time for you to have some rest.
