1) The Astronomy Lesson

2) The Mathematics Lesson


Times two

3) The naming of things

This is a teacup
Here is a clock
These are spectacles
There, stockings

Look at the apple
Consider a grape
See the dragonfly
And the measuring tape

This is a baby
That is a snake
There is a teddy bear
Here is a razor

These are the names of things
Now, I will teach you about flying

4) The Flying Lesson

When you are older you will fly like a bird
Over the heads of all the people
Above the trees and houses
People will think you’re an angel or a devil
They’ll be afraid of you and call you names

But your real name is The Saint
Because you are perfect and beloved
