Beautiful Children, lyrics.
Beautiful Dreamer, a song for my Spellbinder audiences,
Lyrics by Paschal Baute, Lexington Kentucky Spellbinder. July 6, 2012
BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN, WAKE UP to story,
MONSTERS AND FAIRIES ARE WAITING for THEE.
SOUNDS OF THE SCHOOL WORLD ARE PASSING AWAY,
LED BY OUR STORIES TO CHARM EVERY DAY.
BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN, HEAR NOW MY SONGS,
LIST WHILE I WOO THEE WITH SCARY STORY
GONE NOW THE RULES OF SCHOOL'S BUSY THRONG,
BEAUTIFUL Children. AWAKE TO ME,.
BEAUTIFUL DREAMERS, HOW WE love STORY.
BEAUTIFUL Children, BORN FROM THE SEA,
MERMAIDS ARE CHANTING TO ENTRANCE YOU AND ME,
OVER THE STREAMLET HEROES ARE BORNE,
WITCHES WILL FADE AT THE BRIGHT COMING MORN.
BEAUTIFUL Children, BEAMS FOR MY HEART,
STORIES ARE MUSIC FOR HEARTS TO BE WOOED.,
CHASE CLOUDS AWAY, GIVE STARLIGHT FOR DARK,
BEAUTIFUL Children, AWESOME ARE YOU
BEAUTIFUL DREAMERS, AWESOME ARE YOU.!
BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN ,AWAKE TO ME
BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN, YOU ARE THE STORY.
July 7 Beautiful Dreamer
I had a conversation this morning with Stephen collins Foster, American’s first folk song composer, who stepped in my morning Wisdom circle. I love his music, play it on my harmonica for school children storytelling audiences. I am adapting his "Beautiful Dreamer" for children. I asked him if I was okay. He said "By all means. I wrote it for the dreamer in all of us, the child in us. Paschal, I love that you are helping keep my songs alive. So Yes, Paschal, you may adapt he lyrics. "
I have conversations with my Wisdom Circle gang frequently, and often do not know wh9o will show up. See my post on "My Wisdom Circle."
My new lyrics are dedicated to my two grandchildren, Chloe and Quinn. At age 8, a year ago. Chloe announced" I can’t wait to grow up. I ‘m going to SAVE the world.!" Later, she added, "By making it green." Quinn is also a dreamer who loves computer games.
