The Singing Bricks


Some may build with plaster, some may build with brick,
Some may build with granite, that is very strong and thick.
Some may build with mud-bricks, and some may build with straw,
Some may build cathedrals that fill us all with awe.
Some may build a house of cards, that topples to the ground,
Some were built for all time and the relics still astound.

But all we had was people, not all of them could sing.
But they brought enthusiasm, that so vital thing.
And, as they gained in confidence, their voices grew more strong.
A warble soon became a note that was rich and full of song.
They found that they could harmonise and make the rafters ring;
They very soon discovered what fun it is to sing!
Each one of us was just a 'brick', but we had a great desire
To join, as in a building,
and build ourselves a
CHOIR!
