Where 5 little chickadees came from…

Standard

When I was growing up I spent a lot of time visiting my grandparents house. I grew up what to me felt like the boonies. I lived about ten minutes out of town and that town was one small town. The greatest part, I lived about a mile down that old bumpy road from my grandparents. My grandmother was a big part in my life. She was so full of life too. She had a great passion for music and hats šŸ˜‰ she even dabbled in writing. Maybe I’ll figure out how to share some of her work on here with y’all.

She wrote a children’s book called 5 little chickadees based off the memory of one sang to her when she was a little girl. It goes as:

five little chickadees sitting on a fence

one flew away and now there are four

chickadee, chickadee fly away

chickadee, chickadee fly away

four little chickadees sitting on a fence

one flew away and now there are three

chickadee, chickadee fly away

chickadee, chickadee fly away

three little chickadees sitting on a fence

one flew away and now there are two

chickadee, chickadee fly away

chickadee, chickadee fly away

two little chickadees sitting on a fence

one flew away and now there is one

chickadee, chickadee fly away

chickadee, chickadee fly away

one little chickadee sitting on a fence

he flew away and now there are none.

I will always remember and cherish those memories of her singing and picking away on her guitar and banjo.
