Here is the third short piano piece, with the title "A mid day nap".

I decided that the short pieces are going to be part of an album, that I'm going to call "For Children". Writing them will be an interesting exercise for me, they will be written mainly in a simple A-B-A format, so I can spent more time focusing on the phrase structure. I'm sure there must be a lot of ways in constructing them.

Anyway.. here is the third piece:

I like the third piece. It's well written. The only criticism I have is that you don't need the recapitulation. There's a point about half-way through where you could have tied it up quite nicely and not out-do its welcome. I'll have to listen again and see how it feels.

Hi Scott,
I listened to it the way you said, without repeating it, but think it can't hurt. I write it for children as well, and think that after studying this piece, he/she would love to play it more often after all the effort of studying it. I remember that this was always how I felt after studying a piece for long time when I was younger.
