This recipe is from the Imagination Tree
Goldilocks has invited her little bears
to come and play
In the art room just for today
There will be bowls from big to very small
For them to fill with porridge for all.
Touching things, “Oh, so hard.” and “Oh, So soft.”
The little bears will learn a lot.
Childhood slips so quickly away
So Goldilocks knows to cherish these days
