WEDNESDAY, day 33

SONG AND SCENE:  Check out the SIBL project a.k.a. Artists For Literacy.  www.artistsforliteracy.org  It is a website devoted to match works of literature with popular and classical music.   A recent contest on the website named Angie Heimann from California a winner for her song, "What's to become of the Mockingbird?"  Go to the website http://artistsforliteracy.org/win_3060.html and listen to this song

Song Title: What’s to become of the Mockingbird

LISTEN NOW
 

Songwriter: Angie Heimann
Fort Bragg,
California

Source of Inspiration: To Kill A Mockingbird
Author: Harper Lee

How to reach Angie: angieheimann@adelphia.net
Angie's URL: TBA       
Quote from the songwriter:
I love the way this book describes the difference between coming gently into adulthood and losing one's innocence in a way that does irreparable damage. In the song I attempted to articulate this difference through the various "mockingbirds" (the "innocent" characters in danger of a violent loss.)

In a courtroom in a southern town
Watchers white and black and brown
Come to see the falling down
Of a mockingbird


They won’t uproot a lie so old
With so much history to uphold
No matter how the truth is told
Against a white man’s word
And so the mockingbird is caged
A sacrifice for day and age
To bring the turning of a page
Not just yet, but more near it

What’s to become of a mockingbird
Singing so sweet in the tree
When’s this world gonna be a place
Where the innocent go free

High up in the balcony
Nesting as if in a tree
Two eggs among the ebony
In danger of the fall
But they won’t break despite the spill
A father’s firm unbending will
Cushions where the fall would kill
Innocence and all

He who would protect his young
He who would have justice done
Draws the truth which must be sung
But cannot make them hear it

What’s to become of a mockingbird
Singing so sweet in the tree
When’s this world gonna be a place
Where the innocent go free

The path is never clean or sterile
Seeking justice invites peril
Unleashing beasts rabid and feral
Loose upon our streets
A father, though he aims the best
Preparing them for trial and test
Must let the young ones leave the nest
Their own wings for to beat
When their little world is shaken
A friend who know the feel of breaking
Comes out in time to stop the taking
Of their precious songs

What’s to become of a mockingbird
Singing so sweet in the tree
When’s this world gonna be a place
Where the innocent go free

    Halloween

    I heard that the big kids soaped the windows

     on Halloween & all we had was a box of Tide

     & I couldn't reach the windows anyway,

     so I poured a big pile of it on the neighbor's doorstep

     & I never figured out how my mom knew it was me

    until we had kids.
