Secret Song: No Nicky allowed!!!!

Secret Song: No Nicky allowed!!!!

 

This song has been written for Nicky, who somehow manages to give and simultaneously, create, enormous amounts of energy in others.

Nicky loves the work of the English artist, Celia Smith, who drawers the natural environment with wire and this little song tries to capture that same forceful and beautiful energy that propels all living things.

So…why does Nicky get her own song?

Because as an educator, director and parent who adores the flight of others, she deserves it!

‘Crack‘ went the egg

And I poked out my head.

My sisters and my brothers did the same.

We tried to look about.

We were scared of falling out.

And then we heard our parents call our names.

 

And we said…

Can you show me how to fly

Alone…alone?

And we said…

Can you show me how to fly

On my own…on my own?

 

Hush baby chicks,

We will show you how to fly.

We will make you big and strong.

We will teach you were and why.

With all of our friends

We will give you all we know.

You just need a little patience,

You’ve got so much time to grow.

 

And we said…

Can you show me how to fly

Alone…alone?

And we said…

Can you show me how to fly

On my own…on my own?

 

And the wind is ours.

We know just what to do.

Our wings are strong.

So mum and dad and all your friends,

Thank you.

Robert E Fuller shows us some Barn Owl chicks hatching.

And now, thanks to Mum and Dad, these little chicks are able to jump into the sky and fly on their own wings.
