Lulu describes … (recording)

Click on the link above to hear a recording of Lulu

Recording transcribed:

“His nose is a flower,

and I think that his legs are tree trunks,

and I think that his arms are branches,

and I think that , em, his soul is a sky,

I think his hair is the top of the tree

and I think that … um, his um, eyes are leaves

with beatles inside them

and I think that, um, well, I think that his brain is a cloud.”

Mom: “and who are you talking about?”

Lulu:  “God.”

    I love it, Lulu. You have a sensative heart towards God. My favorite parts, “his nose is a flower” and “his soul is the sky”. Wow! How many five year olds know that God has a soul? God is watching over you Lu. I bet he loved hearing your description!

  5. Love it! Here’s my favorite poem for Lulu. I hope she likes it.

    By Joyce Kilmer. 1886–1918


    I THINK that I shall never see
    A poem lovely as a tree.

    A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
    Against the sweet earth’s flowing breast;

    A tree that looks at God all day,
    And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

    A tree that may in summer wear
    A nest of robins in her hair;

    Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
    Who intimately lives with rain.

    Poems are made by fools like me,
    But only God can make a tree.
