No singing this week, kids. Sorry. However, I have three poems for you this time!
The first one today, "Song Of The Twisted Tree", is the one poem I had the most fun writing!
My mother once told me that, if she ever owned a Bed & Breakfast, she would want to name it "The Twisted Tree" and have a sign by the door that read "Beware of the nuts!".
Of course I had to write a song for it, and since my brain spends 95% of its time in a world of fantasy, I based it in the same, and it came out completely ridicules and fun!
The tune I put it to is "O'Sullivans March", a traditional Irish song. The link will take you to a YouTube Video. In case you want to sing along, you should know that there is a "musical interlude" starting from 1:51 and lasting until 3:18 on the video where my song does not fit in.
My little brothers and sisters just love to sing the song along with me, and they dance during the "interlude". They think it's a hoot!
Now, this short little poem is meant for summoning a dragon. If you speak it, the dragon nearest you will hear it and answer your call.
This summons must ONLY be used when you have no other choice. It isn't a "come to my tea-party" invitation. It is a "help me, help me, help me" sort of thing that the dragons take very seriously.
I wrote it a long time ago when I was just a little kid, and it has changed a lot since then, and it still changes when I need it to. It's a very flexible poem.
So, keep it in your pocket and use it wisely.
This song next song, "The Dragon's Breath", is a completely different pace from the other two. It is slow and sad.
I wrote it for the dragons in my books. The horrible things that I put my poor babies through sometimes require a soft, sad song to sooth them afterward.
It actually goes to a song call "The Dragons Breath" composed by David Arkenstone. I took the liberty of putting together a video with my "lyrics" going to Arkenstone's music. Perhaps one day I will actually sing it for you, but, until then, you'll just have to keep your fingers crossed.
