H is for Hand. The Letter 'H' for 'Blogging from A to Z in April', Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

H is for Hand. The Letter 'H' for 'Blogging from A to Z in April', Tuesday, April 9th, 2013.

I don't write much poetry or rhyme. Here is a poem that I first posted for Mrs Denise Nesbitt's ABC-Wednesday, Round 7:

My daughter, Elisabet

Happiness is in your hand,
As a pretty rock found in the sand,
Or sending bubbles to Faerie-land.

Happiness is
children's laughter,  
Tiny flowers and running faster, 
Fairy tales, so ever after.
Happiness is in your hand,  
As two sets of footprints in the sand,  
Come, make me happy, take my hand!

This is my Swedish version: 

Lyckan ligger i din hand,
Vacker som en sten funnen i sand,
Eller bubblor sända till Samarkand.

Lyckan klingar med barnens skratt,
Lyser i ögonen på min katt,
Eller ligger och lurar i en sagoskatt

Lyckan ligger i din hand
Som två par fotspår tryckt i sand
Kom, gör mig lycklig. Tag min hand!


My theme for A to Z is my favourite things that might show up in written stories, poems, paintings or jewellery. This is my list of subjects that I would like to work with.

Best wishes,
