The Wild is Rising

(Sue Mcgowan)

The wild is rising up through the twilight
The wild is rising up through the twilight
Hearts and bodies open to know, the magic of the Earth
Hearts and bodies open to be the healing of the Earth

Animal Spirits

Animal spirits
Come to me now.
Vanishing spirits
Come live in me.
When i run
Let me run like the deer.
When i fight
Let me fight like a mama bear
When i hide
Let me hide like a fox.
When i strike
Let me strike like a snake

Why Does the Sun Shine?

(Songwriters: HY ZARET, LOU SINGER. Performed by They Might Be Giants)

The sun is mass of incandescent gas, a gigantic nuclear furnace
Where hydrogen is built into helium at a temperature of millions of degrees
Yo ho it’s hot, the sun is not a place where we could live
But here on earth there’d be no life without the light it gives
We need its light, we need its heat, we need its energy
Without the sun, without a doubt, there’d be no you and me
The sun is mass of incandescent gas, a gigantic nuclear furnace
Where hydrogen is built into helium at a temperature of millions of degrees
The sun is hot
It is so hot that everything on it is a gas
Iron, copper, aluminum and many others
The sun is large
If the sun were hollow, a million earths could fit inside
And yet the sun is still only a middle-sized star
The sun is far away
About 93,000,000 miles away, and that’s why it looks so small
And even when it’s out of sight, the sun shines night and day
The sun gives heat, the sun gives light, the sunlight that we see
The sunlight comes from our own sun’s atomic energy
Scientists have found that the sun is a huge atom-smashing machine
The heat and light of the sun come from the nuclear reactions
Of hydrogen,carbon, nitrogen and helium
The sun is mass of incandescent gas, a gigantic nuclear furnace
Where hydrogen is built into helium at a temperature of millions of degrees
