Inman Park, Mocking Bird and Lullaby 

27 Apr

Let me take you on a brief walk in Inman Park, Atlanta, taking in the mini libraries, some flowers and a sculpture. 

    
    
 


We passed a chattering tree and realised that we were too close to a pair of Mocking birds and their nest.  

   
The mocking bird brought to mind the lullaby, Mama’s going to buy you a mocking bird, which is an old Southern US lullaby, appropriate given where we are right now.
  

Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,

Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird.
And if that mockingbird don’t sing,

Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring turns brass,

Mama’s gonna buy you a looking glass.
And if that looking glass is broke,

Mama’s gonna buy you a billy goat,
And if that billy goat won’t pull,

Mama’s gonna buy you a cart and a bull.
And if that cart and bull turn over,

Mama’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover.
And if that dog named Rover won’t bark,

Mama’s gonna buy you a horse and a cart.
And if that horse and cart fall down,

you’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.

    Love the mini library idea. I came across similar ones at RV parks when I was traveling, just not so public.
