The Little Plant

In the heart of a seed
Buried deep so deep
A dear little plant
Lay fast asleep

Wake, said the sunshine
Creep to the light
Wake, said the voice
of the raindrops bright

The little plant heard
And it rose to see
What a wonderful sight
The outside world might be

This shy 3.5 years old Superman memorized the poem above… Hear him below and be amused at how he managed to know it by heart… Check out the video…

And on Nov. 23, he will be competing against other Nursery 1 students for the Voice of Children presentation. Winner or not on Friday, he is still our little hero.

he definitely won our hearts…

the little plant and Jake’s story is parallel to each other…he was once our family’s little plant…now he is competing against fellow nursery classmates…and in his cape and briefs worn outside his pants – he will save the world!!!

He’s our super little plant hehehe…

That Superman costume was worn during their Book Week though I don’t recall having seen a book about Superman…. comics was more like it. Hehehe…

my gosh, linnor! this was the very same poem i first memorized as a kid ever (and i entered a poem-reading contest with it too)! hanggang ngayon memorized ko pa siya, hahaha!

uy, its a bird, its a plane, no… its super jake! panalo! πŸ™‚

Really? That’s amazing! So this poem must have been around for quite some time na rin pala… Some coincidence that you know the same poem.

Hahaha… He was the one who chose the Superman costume from the rest. Katawa coz I bought this after Halloween. Di sya na-maximize. πŸ˜›

i love the ‘finish’ part hehe.. gosh, he’s a big boy now..

Hahaha… “Finish”…. Yeah, he’s really grown so fast! πŸ˜€

galeng! don’t forget to post the video of the actual competition. πŸ™‚

Hehehe… Galing ba kamo? Mana kasi eh! Joke! Opkors I’ll post the vid after Friday! πŸ˜€

hi ate linnor! time really flies so fast! i remember seeing u at may’s wedding. kakapanganak mo pa lng ata nun. anyway, good luck to ur little superman! m sure he’ll do well. see u soon!

jake’s a big boy na, smart pa! i’ll wait for the video of the competition ha.

Hehehe… I remember you as a quiet pre-teen. Now you’re about to have a family of your own… I agree, time flies! πŸ˜‰

We’re all excited about the poem recitation…Hehehe… Can’t wait to record his first public speaking engagement (as if naman) for posterity
