THE BASIN BLUES
Shhhh! Buzz, buzz, shhhh! Slap,
slap, crunch, crack, yipes! Hum, hum,
sputter, splash, splat! Buzz, buzz, hummmmm!
There’s a place where critters
abound, where water is deep and rich,
where animals munch on grassy green
stalks, and then take the time for a dip....
There’s a place, where grasshoppers
go, where nutria travel and trail, where
birds of all kinds of feathers will flock
together, and fish look fishy-eyed at the world!
There’s a place where a crab is a
king, and a snail like a jewel will sway,
There’s a place where fisher people will
go and will stay all night and all day!
There’s a place where the sun and
energy it brings shines from daylight to
dusk, then a silvery white moon will
sparkle the night and the sounds,
whoooo, whaaaaa, kurplunk, swish and
glop, will make all of us stop!
