Little Brown Seed

I’m a little brown seed in the ground
Rolled up in a tiny ball (sitting on heels, on the floor, drop head
over knees)
I’ll wait for the rain and sunshine (same position, place arms over
head and wiggle fingers downward for rain, then place both
hands in a large circle over head for sun)
To make me big and tall (stand straight stretching arms over head)


I work in my garden
Plant seeds in a row
The rain and the sunshine (flutter fingers, make circle with arms)
Will help them to grow
Sometimes when the weather
Is too dry and hot
I sprinkle the earth
With my watering pot (make fist of four fingers, thumb pointing
The roots pushing downward (place one hand on the other wrist,
fingers on the other hand spread apart and pointing down)
The stems pushing up
My blossoms have opened (hands out, palms up with fingers
curling up in cup-like manner)
Rose, pink, buttercup
