The Choir Poem

By Cottingham member Gerry.

Some members of the choir said…
“No….. we can’t sing at all”
But they were proved wrong on Saturday night
When they sang at the Civic Hall

Now they didn’t have much time to learn
These songs they sang so well
But their words poured out
And there was no doubt
They were definitely top of the bill

The children sang with all their hearts
With actions that matched the beat
Their little faces full of pride
As they tapped their little feet

I watched with joy as they performed
Ruth’s brilliant repertoire
And they even had some funny guy
Sing and strum his old guitar

They sang so well…. what can I say
I had to dry the tears
Who would have thought?
This choir.….. well taught
Would fill the air with cheers

The sound they made
Just filled the air
Yes…. filled it with delight
We clapped and listened
To the whole rendition
We heard throughout the night

Now when you ‘Wish Upon a Star’
And make your dreams come true
And make the world a better place.. for you… and you…. and you…!
And see the people smile…… and smile
And hear the voices sing
Oh what joy we all feel
Full of the joys of spring
