Come Out With Me

There’s sun on the river and sun on the hill . . .
You can hear the sea if you stand quite still!
There’s eight new puppies at Roundabout Farm-
And I saw an old sailor with only one arm!

But everyone says, “Run along!”
(Run along, run along!)
All of them say, “Run along! I’m busy as can be.”
Every one says, “Run along,
There’s a little darling!”
If I’m a little darling, why don’t they run with me?

There’s wind on the river and wind on the hill . . .
There’s a dark dead water-wheel under the mill!
I saw a fly which had just been drowned-
And I know where a rabbit goes into the ground!

But everyone says, “Run along!”
(Run along, run along!)
All of them say, “Yes, dear,” and never notice me.
Every one says, “Run along,
There’s a little darling!”
If I’m a little darling, why won’t they come and see?

Deep in the Hundred Acre Wood,
Where Christopher Robin plays.
You’ll find the enchanted neighborhood,
of Christopher’s childhood days.

A donkey named Eeyore is his friend.
And Kanga and Little Roo.
There’s Rabbit and Piglet.
And there’s Owl.
But most of all Winnie the Pooh!

Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh,
A tubby, little cubby all stuffed with fluff.
He’s Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh,
A willy, nilly, silly old bear.

Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh,
A tubby, little cubby, all stuffed with fluff.
He’s Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh.
A willy, nilly silly old bear.

Today we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr.

992d438e9662d85a4e6a9bc40cb6d766

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on Martin Luther King Day to serve their neighbors and communities.

The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, a call to service initiative. Today, ask yourself what can you do for others. You can volunteer at a local non-profit or just simply do something kind for a neighbor, friend or a complete stranger (nothing is better than a random act of kindness)!
