Got the following message from my DIL today. FWIW.

"A few weeks ago, [my grandson] Gabriels chorusmaster told the
Childrens Chorus of Washington about several childrens choirs in New
Orleans whose members had been scattered all over the country because
of the hurricanes, making it unlikely they would be able to
regroup. One child apparently said that not being able to sing with his
choir made him thirsty. Gabriel identified with that specific loss,
among all the devastation, and decided to write a poem for those
children and their choirs...."


A brilliant ocean
Dancing light
Sparkles with life
Healing wind blows over your face
And wounds of warped smiles
Wash away in tides of stillness
The rhythm of the water against the battered beach
Pounds a beat
Into a mind healing song
That wishes your worry away
Clouds clear
Then sun rains down
Hitting the earth
With thunderous pounds of joy
A leaping blue sky caresses the sun
A choir of voices can be heard again
The thirsty plant
Inside your soul
Is thirsty no more
And blooms with many thanks
Hallelujah, I can live again
Hallelujah, I can sing again

Dedicated to the city and choirs of New Orleans
