I Wanted To Hug All The Sounds Around Me …
Written by Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee
I had to write words to what I felt as I walked … silly words that made a song inside my head. By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee.
Walking my dog in the meadow surrounded by trees
Listening to the sounds around me
I felt … I wanted to hug them all except … one
My Dukester ran here … there … to sniff
I could hear his soft chuffing as he ran
Butterflies chased him as he went
I could hear a big bullfrog calling
Calling for who I don’t know
Maybe his mama, girlfriend .. I don’t know who
Birds whistled, sang their songs over my head
Flew all around to sit on limbs … fly away
Something tells me they have babies around
Ur … Ur.. Ur-rrrrr I could hear a rooster, too
I wonder if it was a chicken instead
Do roosters crow during the day?
I stood still for a moment to hear a quiet sound
It was the wind … I could feel it on my face
I wanted to hug it all … the wind too
A dragonfly flew close to my face
Did it look at me to see who I was?
Could it have been Tommy … looking for his mommy?
In the distance, I heard the sound of a chainsaw
I had been thinking I wanted to hug the sounds around me
Except for the chainsaw … I’d rather hear it in the distance
I stood with my eyes closed … I hugged all the sounds around me
Except for the chainsaw … I hugged them with my Heart
I love those sounds … it means the world around me … is alive

Some silly words that came to me as I walked The Dukester this morning … I don’t sing … yet I was walking singing … ‘I want to hug the sounds all around me’. Isn’t that funny? 🙂
