Stories & Songs

STORIES 

Through years of working with families and children I have developed a range of stories for a range of situations. From helping children to form healthy boundaries in their life long journeys to working with adults and their own human conditions (including my own!), I relish the opportunity to work with the powerful and therapeutic art of storytelling .

I have had two stories published in Susan Perrow’s internationally acclaimed book “Healing Stories for Challenging Behaviour” including Shimmer Wing & Never Get Enough.

Bindy Man” words by Susan Perrow melody by Sandra Frain

Watch as you pass
Your feet through the grass
Spikey-face Bindy man you may meet
He’s watching,
He’s waiting, to catch your soft feet.
Ouch! Beware. Ouch! Beware. Ouch! Beware,
He’s hiding somewhere!

“Come Butter” From Hawthorne Valley Farm, New York

Come butter come
Come butter come
If you don’t hurry you’re gonna be late and
I’m gonna beat you to the garden gate.

“Through the Windy Woods I Wander” By Peter Orem (Pentatonic)

Through the Windy woods I wander
Weave my way from tree to tree
Looking for a good companion
Who will come and walk with me.

“Tiny Seed” Words by Sandra Frain Pentatonic Tune by Liz Kee

Seed Seed Tiny Seed
in Mother earth all cozy indeed
Seed Seed Tiny seed
Root and stem you will need
then 2 leaves and you are freed
Seed seed tiny seed
Oh and a blossom
how beautiful indeed.

flitting in and flitting out and flitting all about

Oh what a delight
Tiny points of light
Oh what a delight it is
Yellow fluffy wattle blossoms glowing day and night
Yellow fluffy wattle blossoms glowing day and night.

“Kangaroo Family” by Sandra Frain

A leaping and a hopping
a leaping and a hopping
a leaping and a hopping
and a pow pow pow
Mother Kanga hears a sound
Who could it be who is around?
“Click click” “click click”
Here comes Joey comes on the bound
into her pouch
Without a sound

“Eagle Song” by Sandra Frain

Eagle Eagle fly so high
Up up up in clear blue sky
Over Waves that rush and roar
To your stick nest
on cliff near by
