The older child is playing in her keyboard, a song she sings at school. As she attempts again and again to bring the song to tune, my interest is piqued as to the lyrics of the song.
I ask her about the song, she says that it is the ‘vowel’ song that they sing at school and sings it for me.
On the earth I love to stand, strength from stones I’ve taken,
Striding boldly o’er the land, fearless and unshaken. Aaaaaaaa…..
And in water’s silvery waves, gladly do I revel,
From the fishes I can learn, up and down to travel. Eeeeeeeeee……
Upward to the light I look, where the sun shines brightly,
And with rainbow colors clear, paints the flowers lightly. Iiiiiiiii…..
In the air I love to jump, Oh! that I were flying,
Like a bird with outspread wings, O’er the hilltops gliding. Uuuuuuu….
Gratefully your gifts I hold, in my heart’s deep shrine,
Earth and Water, Air and Light, brothers all of mine. Ooooooo………
What a befitting song to kick start CROCUS2011?!
