Okay, I have a song…..about the water cycle….each verse is sung over the next….maybe Dede will help me if I’ve remembered this incorrectly….it’s best experienced in a large group (12 or more voices) And, it works real well if you’re standing in a circle, with all the voices singing on top of each other. Once you get into your part,without being distracted by the others, begin walking around, singing to each other.
It feels like water might feel when it’s doing it’s flowing work—and it sounds beautiful!
(sung in baritone)
The wheels in the water go round and round and the wheels in the water go round….
(sung in a lovely high voice, soprano if attainable)
See the vapors rise, see them cloud the skies….
(sung in another lovely high voice)
Trickle, trickle down….down to the ocean, trickle, trickle down…
(sung in the middle place, alto)
Rain falls down, CRASH (clap hands together loudly)–thunder and lightening sounds!
(another middle place voice)
Springs bubble, bubble up, POP (pop the inside of your mouth with your thumb)!
Water. I do love it. Water meanders, waves, ripples. It creates movement, circulation, transportaion. We see patterns of flow in streams, rivers, glaciers, sand dunes, moray eels and snakes. The wave is a basic physical pattern. It provides pulsation, timing and the possiblity of measurement over time into a system. Your heartbeat is a wave pattern. Flowing water carves the edge of land it passes through. Water is strong and powerful. After a while, I feel in tune, when I sit near the edge of Lake Michigan, listening to the water come to shore, over and over and over again.
