Copyright on all my poems

My grandson, Daniel, when 3 years of age, loved this poem so much, that like many children, we had to go over it many times.  I found some "wonky" music to go with it which particularly appealed to the children.  Your children may like to hear it and hear my grandson, who, even after five times, wanted it yet again.  I think your children may too.
