Awake, awake. The sun is shining bright.

Once there was a little mouse, looking for a little house,

She spied a basked by the way and said:

I will stay here for a day.

Who are you? I am an ox. How do you do.

Please come in. I have room for you.

And becomes a butterfly.

The great oak tree thinks he is the strongest

Because he’s been there the longest

The sleeker reed, she knows much better

For she can bend in stormy weather.

And down the great oak tree came crashing.

The slender reed swayed in the weather

And at the dawn, was stronger as ever.

Once upon a time, in a midnight, a goose, raised by an old couple, keeps gabbling. The old man and the old lady get up to check. They find out that the goose laid a golden egg.

The old lady says: Let’s sell it out tomorrow and we will get some money. The next day, the old man sells out the egg and buys some more food. The old man and the old lady are happy every day.

But the goose gives only one golden egg every day.

One day, the old lady says: The goose gives us only one egg every day. There must be many golden eggs inside her body. If we open her body, we can get some more golden eggs. So we can buy a new house, a new horse, a new barn and maybe a new field.

The old man kills the goose, but there is nothing inside. And the old man and the old lady don’t have any more golden eggs to sell out.

Don’t kill the goose that gives you the golden eggs.

Morning Verse for Semester 2

The sun is in my heart. He warms me with his power,
And wakens life and love In bird and beast and flower.
With joy I greet the morning sun
Who shines with love on every one
Who shines in the sky, on the land and sea,
And who fills me with light When he shines on me.
Good morning (afternoon) to you and Good morning (afternoon) to me.

A bunny came to call last night. 
I did not see him – That is right. 
But he was there; here is how I know – 
He nibbled at my carrot row. 
Song:
Oh the lord is good to me
And so I thank the lord
For giving me the things I need
The rain the sun and the apple seed
The lord is good to me.
Poem - Chant - Song:
Planting rice is never fun, Bent from morn till the set of sun,
Cannot stand and cannot sit,  Cannot rest for a little bit! 
When the early sunbeams break, You will wonder as you awake,
In what muddy neighborhood,  There is work and the pleasant food?
Planting rice is no fun, Bent from morn till set of sun;
Cannot stand, Cannot sit, Cannot rest a little bit.
Oh, my back is like to break, Oh, my bones with the damp still
ache, And my legs are numb and set, From their long soaking in the wet.
It is hard to be so poor, And such sorrow and pain endure,
You must move your arms about, Or you'll find you must go without!

This is the key of the kingdom.
In that kingdom there is a city.

In that yard there is a house.
In that house there waits a room.
In that room an empty bed.
And on that bed a basket.
A basket of sweet flowers,
Of flowers, of flowers.

Story: the monkey king
Many years ago, a group of monkeys lived in a deep forest. One day, when they were playing upon a rock, suddenly, a big stone shook right and left. HONG !
The stone exploded and small stones flew everywhere. The monkeys were shocked and ran to hide themselves.
A few minutes later, they came out and saw a monkey with golden hair jumping out from the stone. They played together.
The stone monkey was speedy and brave. There was a huge waterfall in the forest. No one dared to go in there, but he jumped down directly.
He found a huge cave behind the waterfall. There were many natural stone beds, stone tables and stone chairs.
All the monkeys moved in and they called this place 'Shoei-Lian-Dong'. The stone monkey became the leader of them.
One day, an old monkey died. 'I can't stay here for my whole life. I have to find out the magic of immortality.' He thought.
He traveled over hills and rivers, and found an immortal in the deep mountain finally. After eight years, he fulfilled his wish.
When he left, the immortal gave him a piece of flying cloud. With it, the stone monkey could travel one thousand miles a day.
As he flew back to Shoei-Lian-Dong, he saw a monster there. The stone monkey defeated the monster easily.
He then thought he should have his own weapon. So he went to the dragon king and borrowed a pillar from his palace.
The magic rod could be larger and smaller, longer and shorter as he wished. With the magic rod, he defeated other monsters.
But he also made troubles in Heaven. One day, he was bored. He ate all the magic peaches that grew every one hundred years.
Thus, the Jade Emperor degraded him to take care of the horses. The monkey felt insulted. He refused the new job.
He fought with the soldiers in Heaven. Although he thought he was peerless, Buddha defeated him at last.
To punish the stone monkey, Buddha trapped him under the Five Finger Mountain for five hundred years.
Actually, he was the famous monkey, Suen-Wuh-Kong, who accompanied Tarng-San-Tzang to the west in search of Buddha's holy book.
Poem by Eileen Hutchins
The sun says “I glow,”
The wind say “I blow,”
The stream says “I flow,”
The plant says “I grow,”
And man says “I know.”

Story: The Fox and the Crow - Aesop's fable
Once upon a time a Fox sees a Crow with a piece of cheese in her beak.
The Fox sits down beneath the tree and calls,
"Good day, Mistress Crow! How well you are looking!
How bright your eyes! How glossy your feathers!"
 The Crow is pleased. She loves to be flattered.
"I am sure your voice is even more beautiful than your feathers,"
The Fox says.  "Won't you sing a song for me, O Queen of Birds?"
The Crow is so pleased she can hardly sit still.
She lifts her head high, closes her eyes.
She opens her beak to sing: CAW-C-CAW-W-W
The cheese falls to the ground, in front of the Fox.
"Thank you Mistress Crow," he said to the unhappy bird.

I thought I heard an old man say,
O John Kanaka, naka, too-la-ay
Today, today is a sailing day
O John Kanaka, naka, too-la-ay
