Dance O' Bird Turquoise

Dance o'bird turquoise dance- clouds summit- dance
Yell for your friends- out all to join you- yell
Dance o'bird turquoise- light is dimming-dance
Tell the winds- gently soft be breezing - tell

And now clouds clash- their beats- you to dance- and
Mood- monsoon has set up- to set your mood
And look- your pals all ready in set- and
Good rains - gently unfurling- a sign good

Too good a sign- scenting soil blooming too
All chirrups surround- watchers true than all
Ooh and aah- yes- they are ready to ooh
All is well- o' bird turquoise- for you all

Dance- -wind is blowing- clouds are booming- dance
La la la- taralala - la la la

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
