A Little Girl's Heart

 Does your heart have a bit of the "little" girl or "little" boy in it?
When you were young, did you dream of such a place?
 Or maybe finding a cabin tucked and hidden in the woods?
 Did you dream dreams of adventures and discovery?
Step inside, dream a little dream with me.
For I still have a "little" girls heart,
a heart that dreams of secret hide-aways.
What treasures would we find?
Would we carry a book and some tea into these secret places?
Would we share or keep the secret?
Let your "little" child's heart come and play with me,
for dreams I have just stepping here.

Dear Marilyn
Yes I've never lost my little girl's heart either!
As 71 and 72 year olds we could have a wonderful tea party in our secret garden place - spreading out a rug to hold our favourite books and tea time goodies!!!
Meet you there!

Beautiful post today, the words and photos matched perfectly. I have always been a secret keeper.

Deborah Montgomery said...

What a sweet post. Sometimes I go to sleep dreaming of lovely places to visit, and they're usually such as you describe. A book and tea, and a beautiful setting. sounds wonderful!

Great looking tree house! My grandson would love it! No, I would be afraid to go into those secret places, too worried about a snake being there! Guess I've lived in Florida too long! LOL! I love to read about those secret places tho!


Jeanie said...

It doesn't surprise me about that little girl inside you! That tree house is simply magical!

Adrienne said...

My little girl's heart never grew up! I'd love to have tea in a secret place or a sweet playhouse. And share secrets and giggles and all things girlish.

Tracy said...

I still dream of such a place... LOL! A castle-style tree house would be a great addition to our garden! ha... There would be a table & chairs for tea and tinkering with crafty projects. Soft white curtains at the windows. Maybe space to "camp out" overnight with the stars... Well, I could dream all day on this one! VERY fun, Marilyn!! Happy Days ((HUGS))

Jeanne said...

Yes I am very childlike in many ways having a heart of my youth.
They were enchanting days and enriched with love and happiness.
We all need spaces and time for dreaming especially in the spring.

Love Jeanne

I have been wanting a "writer's cottage" for a while now, but you know, a treehouse would work just fine! ;)

I've learned through my recent stay in Missouri that a wicked beauty lives in these broken places. I've found a few that break my heart so much that I can't photograph them. It would be disrespectful to those who still live within. Being here has been a real lesson to me on what I can shoot and what should only be gazed upon. An unexpected lesson but one I was glad to learn.

I have never has even a pinch of boy in me. Girly, girl but I always dreamed of a little cabin in the woods. All to myself!! Clarice

Relyn Lawson said...

Oh, yes. I still dream of having a place like that.

Great photos of tree houses, being tucked away in a quiet hidey hole would be a delightful treat in our often too busy world.

I always wanted a dollhouse I could play in! Never got one...but made sure Miss Spenser did! I HAD so much fun decorating it for her!
