A Different Kind of Strength
Pine Forest Floor
I'd Rather Be Homesick Than Home
I Have Four Gifts for You
The Greatest Things
Don't Weep for Delores

I wanted to write a song for children about the rain. It turned into a song about the rhythm of the day and night, and of growing things. When you sing it with children, you can sing the first line of each verse, and the children can sing the second line with you. That way, you "line out" the song for them. DOWNLOAD the Sheet Music PDF
