ABOUT

Commissioned for Allegro Con Moto of the Allegro Community Children’s Choir in honor of Frances Neunebel

Recording of Allegro Con Moto of the Allegro Community Children’s Choir, Greater Kansas City, Christy Elsner, conductor

Text by Grace Nichols:

1.Sky
Tall and blue,
true and open,
so open my arms have room for all the world

For sun and moon,
for birds and stars,

Yet how I wish I had the chance
to come drifting down,
to earth,
a simple bed sheet,
covering some little girl
or boy
just for a night.

But I am sky. That’s why.

2. Sun
The sun is a glowing spider
that crawls out from under
the earth
to make her way across the sky

Warming and weaving
with her bright old fingers
of light
