Sounds of Home – Wash

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the April 27th edition of Sounds of Home!

Bertie Bubble

Bertie was a bubble who went floating in the air,
A very brilliant bubble for his colors they were rare,
He floated past the window, and he nearly hit the wall,
He floated through the kitchen, and he floated down the hall.

He was drifting on so nicely, when a wind blew through the door,
It shook poor Bertie Bubble, and it bounced him on the floor.
Of all the great misfortunes, this surely was the worst,
There was trouble for our bubble, when old Bertie burst.

Song found in The Book of Children’s Songtales
compiled by John M. Feierabend

Word Ladder:


Hjalmar’s word ladder poem:

I found a little ROCK — it was there, lying on its back,
So I put it on display on my rock collector’s RACK.
But it didn’t match the rest, it was really out of WACK.

So I took it back outside, had another little WALK,
Down along the garden WALL, where I heard some children talk.
Then one began to WAIL and ran off down the block.

The other, quoting Shakespeare, shouted, “Saucy minion, WAIT!
Thou WAST who broke that little egg upon my little pate!”
Then off he rushed to WASH his hair and cleanse its eggy state.

Like to lend your voice?
There are two opportunities remaining!
As the West Denmark community begins to gather in person once more, Sounds of Home will be signing off May 11th.

Our theme for May 4th is “fire”

If you have a response to this theme – whether a story or memory, original piece of writing or poetry, music, radio drama, or one-liner – the sky’s the limit –  or would like to guest host or lead a song to sing together, 
we’re eager to hear from you!

Or if you still have a thought for “wash”…  
We’d love to hear it, too!

To submit a response, 
please make an audio recording and email it to Molly
or send in a written response to be read aloud on the program.

Contact Molly at for information and submissions.
Submission deadline is Monday, May 3rd.

    These were all very good! Dan didn’t recognize Heinrik at first. I like the word ladder that was new to me. The song was really cute too. I will miss Sounds of Home. But it will be good to see people in person! Thanks Molly for doing this!
