This Sunday the choir presents a song by Eric Ode and Tim Blickman. Titled “Weave Me A Poem” the song was commissioned with a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts by the CSA Children’s Choir directed by Dr Mary Lynn Doherty. The beautiful melody compliments the beautiful words in free verse.
There’s a small gray bird hidden in the roses;
the one nobody notices, the one nobody sees.
Does that small bird worry as we’re hurrying by
that her song is not worth singing
and nothing is worth bringing to the day?
I have a song.
Will I hide it inside me,
or will I give it away?
Sunday the choir will give this song away for free!
