Scenes from a Steiner Playgroup
March 26, 2013 § 1 Comment
On a warm Autumn day, we gather.
Children tread gently into the space, are drawn to their favourite toys.
I put on my indoor slippers and sing the welcome song.
Small hands in my large; I wash their hands (if they will let me).
We knead, shape, sing the dough into buns.
Today we make hot cross buns,
and wrap some bulb babies in fleece blankets, ready to plant at home.
We go outside. Breathe out. Play and laugh,
then I gather them in, to sing together again. And we eat.
Light the special candle, say our blessing.
Little faces seeking mine, seeking to be seen and loved.
I send them off, full of life.
And I smile, my heart full of love.
