RAINDROPS ARE COOL

I've just had another conversation with my daughter about the poem. Apparently Kimberley was making dinner and Harvey started singing the start of the poem. Kimbereley asked where it had come from and he said from his head. She was so impressed that she asked him to sing it again and started typing it out but after four lines she had to stop and finish off making dinner.

Harvey then took over the typing and finished it off himself, apart from the end. He asked what else raindrops did and she said the bit about the petals which he wrote down. He asked if there was anything else and she said "no that's cool". "That's right" he said "rainsdrops are cool".

Mind you, the child is such a windup merchant that it is quite conceivable he had heard it somewhere else. Either way, bearing in mind that he was only just 7 last week, he is destined to go places.

Aren't our grandchildren just brilliant? Don't know where they got it from...must be from us!

Yes, Sandi, they do say that intellect comes down the female line. But I think he gets his artistic side from his dad.

He's such a cute little guy....now that come come from his parents!! Wish I could be there for you, but we'll offer our prayers and hope they can help OG real soon.

I'm glad you agree with me Dumdad. How cool is it to have a 7 year old grandson who not only writes poety but also sets it to music! I think that makes ME cool too!!
