Mother Ginger


Her Polichinelles

frilly petticoats

little feet beneath her skirt

mother proudly grins

dancing on their tippy toes

sweet and fun wrapped up in one

    Reblogged this on Words4jp's Blog and commented:

    The Land of the Sweets could not be complete without Mother Ginger and her children – running out from under her big skirt to romp and play. Think of Mother Ginger as a person standing on a moving theatrical set, with a huge costume covering what is underneath – little children (and the technician rolling…). This is a rousing and amusing piece and of course, there are these ‘sweet’ little children dancing… I was never a ginger child, but I do recall one particular ginger kid who grew up to be a famous actress. She and I danced together for a spell…..does the name Sarah Jessica Parker ring a bell?

    If I could add the music to your words, that would be awesome. Thanks again, Kim for sharing these:)

    Oh and Sarah Jessica Parker, wow! I had a crush on her when she was on “Square Pegs,” let’s keep that between us 😉

      hehehehe – in those days, she went by Sarah Parker. Jessica was added when she moved to NYC. no worries….your secret is safe with me!

        I guess you need to use your full name in the big city! Thanks for keeping it under lock and key 🙂
