I’ve been waiting a long time—I mean,

I’ve been in here

a long,

long,

long time.

 

(DREAM-MAKER:)

Patience.

CATERPILLAR:

k5961793Okay… (sigh)

I’ll calm down.

I’ll be patient, but I’m just saying,

it’s been a long time. In a very tight space.

I can’t move it’s so tight!

 

(DREAM-MAKER:)

Sing Me your song.

CATERPILLAR:

Song?

(DREAM-MAKER:)chrysalis-clipart-butterfly-pupa

You know the one.

CATERPILLAR:

Ummmm, okay. Let’s see…

Dear God above, the source of Love, please here me when I call

With colors gay, begin today, to make me something new.

swirlnotes1redLet me sing, on gossamer wings, to dreamers—not a few;

A song to show, that all things low, can miracles believe,

If they will shed, all fear and dread, and new dreams now receive!
