I think I'm in love...

... with a paper punch. Is that possible? Shhhh.... don't tell my husband.

I have a little poem to share that I love to read to my girls, especially my four year old who really gets into it... she is just learning her letters and the sounds they make so this one is fun for her to listen to. Enjoy!

The Hag is astride,
    This night for to ride;
The Devill and shee together:
    Through thick, and through thin,
    Now out, and then in,
Though ne’r so foule be the weather.

    A Thorn or a Burr
    She takes for a Spurre:
With a lash of a Bramble she rides now,
    Through Brakes and through Bryars,
    O’re Ditches, and Mires,
She followes the Spirit that guides now.

    No Beast, for his food,
    Dares now range the wood;
But husht in his laire he lies lurking:
    While mischiefs, by these,
    On Land and on Seas,
At noone of Night are working,

    The storme will arise,
    And trouble the skies;
This night, and more for the wonder,
    The ghost from the Tomb
    Affrighted shall come,
Cal’d out by the clap of the Thunder.

The Hag by Robert Herrick (1648)

Oh, wow...I'm loving that punch, too. I saw it at Michael's last week...maybe a good use for my 50% off coupon?
