M for Mountains

misty mountains multiply
a million marvelous M's;
mingle mint and marigold
in meadows of mystery.
the moon sends down its magic beams
making merry melodies
on the mirrors of murmuring streams

Numbers 1- 7

We made beeswax numbers 1 through 7 as we were studying them. Now we laid out the numbers and the corresponding number of items under them. Second time we mixed the numbers around.
