"The Carol Of The Birds" as written by and M. Leontovich Peter J. Wilhousky....
(traditional)

When rose the Eastern Star
The birds came from afar
In that full night of glory
With one melodious voice
They sweetly did rejoice
And sang the wondrous story
Sang, praising God on high
Enthroned above the sky
And his fair mother, Mary.

The eagle left his lair
Came winging through the air
His message loud arising
And to his joyous cry
The sparrow made reply
His answer sweetly voicing
"O'ercome are death and strife,
This night is born New Life"
The robin sang, rejoicing.

When rose the Eastern Star
The birds came from afar....

    General Commentnice for kids, the melody and all. Joan's singing is felt like organ's play here.
    For parents, it digs a hole: how can we refuse our kids' desire to feed animals, not to eat them?
    It demands us to do 2 hard things, create something like meat trees (anyway to make some vegerables produce animal quality nutriments); to build houses large enough for kids and animals.
