In the quiet of the afternoon

Just my doll and me

We go out to the garden

And sit underneath a tree

The flowers smell so pretty

They are all in bloom

It's such a lovely way 

To spend the afternoon

And if I'm real quiet

And I don't make a sound

And I sit still, as still can be

The humming birds come around

They dart here and they dart there

Much faster than the eye

They are nice, but I like best

The Monarch Butterfly

If I am very quiet

And don't move, do you suppose

He'll float right down and gently land

Upon my freckled nose
