The Simple Things...

This is one of my very favorite songs and lessons. Its pretty little melody makes me smile...

To listen to Simple Gifts from Appalachian Spring by Aaron Copeland, go HERE.

"Simple Gifts"

'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gain'd,
To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,
To turn, turn will be our delight
'Till by turning, turning we come round right.

A simple paper hat. She played with it for hours!


  1. Thank you, I have been wanting to hear the tune to this song.


  2. She is so cute! And, yes, the simple things are the best!

  3. I remember making one of these for Bee! I know I have a picture somewhere...I'll have to find it.


Thanks for visiting. I read and value each one of your comments, so type away! Blessings!
