A Laugh to Wake the World – An Original Poem

Image Source A Laugh to Wake the World Ellie Cummins In forest deep, A laugh rang out And tickled all the trees The world asleep Professed to pout, And waited for the breeze. The laugh soared on As sunlight drowsed And gently bid it rise. In bashful dawn The world was roused, And opened sleepy eyes. The sky turned gold The wind took hold, And morning came quite fast. All […]

Through The Door – An Original Song

Hello! How are you? We’re in Hungry Horse, Montana. This morning, we went horseback riding on a trail ride. (I found the ride rather ironic, because my horse, Waylon, kept eating along the way. Get it — Hungry Horse?) 😀 It was a wonderful experience. I would love to share a song I wrote with you, called “Through The Door.” It was written in the camper using Micah’s guitar, and […]

Cascades

Hey, Folks! How’s your week going? Here’s a little piece I composed called “Cascades.” I wrote it about twelve months ago, inspired by some music a friend sent me, and would love for you to listen to it!

This way, the […]

Judge – A Poem

Hello, Folks! What’s your favorite thing about this week so far? This week, I’d love to share a quick little poem I wrote called “Judge”, which muses on the tendency we humans have to bear a grudge. I hope you find it thought-provoking and enjoyable!

More To A Girl Than A Mirror – A Song

Hello! How are you? I wrote a song this week that I would absolutely love to share with you. It’s called “More To A Girl Than A Mirror” or “Mirrors,” depending on if you want a mouthful or not. This song was one of my first attempts at a broadway-type song, with wacky chords and a wide melody range. I had a ton of fun writing it, and even made a […]

Everybody Needs A Uke

Hey, Folks! What’s your favorite thing about this week so far? When we were camping as a family in Texas, I bought a ukelele to use as a small and portable (and adorable!) instrument. I have found it to meet all of those requirements! I’d love to share a song that I wrote with it, called “Everybody Needs A Uke.” The song was written in about thirty minutes, because I basically recorded […]
