A little bird sits in the evening light
Sings a beautiful song to welcome the night.
To calm our souls and soothe our minds
To push all bad thoughts far behind.
Sing little bird for the hearts that bleed
For the anguished souls and people in need.
Sing little bird that people will see
Causing pain and suffering’s not the way to be.
Sing little bird to make the world aright
To turn this darkness into light.
Sing little bird as loud as you will
To herald a time that is peaceful and still.
I am a mother and grandmother who enjoys writing but usually just for my own pleasure. I was born in Essex but spent many of my adult years in various overseas wherever my husband was working. I studied Sociology originally at University but began teaching English as a Foreign Language while abroad. On our return to the UK I began working in adult education teaching Literacy and Numeracy but always had a passion for Early Years education. As such I retrained and spent a number of years working as an early years practitioner, until I retired in November 2019. I now live in Leicestershire and have two grown up children and two young grandchildren with whom I love to play and read stories to.. During Lockdown I wrote a number of little short stories for them, which i recorded and shared with them just for fun. My first little children's story book Off to the Beach was published by Bumble Bee Books (part of Olympia Publishers) in April 2021. It really was a lockdown project!
