animal dynamics in 6/8

Linking to dVerse poetics where Victoria hosts a musical theme.  Gotta love the sound of musical terms and be amused by antics of animals at their own unique tempo!


sheep doloroso bleats

chicken vivace peeps

horse grazioso clopsunknown

bullfrog legato hops

kittens vibrato mew

cattle adagio chew

deer acapella leap

ants presto creep

grizzly forte growls

wolf cadenza howls

puppy capriccio frisks

squirrels bourree whisk

    Am I wrong to think this work belongs also to children to enjoy along with their parents, and would make a great children’s book? I see the animal pictures now, and the new musical vocabulary of kindergarteners stunning their teachers, lol.

    Love this! Playful, and accurate description of all those animals. Loved the fact that the title included a time signature.

    Somehow I saw the tension of wildlife, we see it as serene, but often from the animal’s point of view you either prey or you are being preyed.

    I wouldn’t say choppy, Lynn–how about staccato! It’s so fun and, for me, illustrates how all creation has music within. Even my little deaf dog responds to the rhythm of vibrations.

    It seems all nature knows how to sing their part. That’s a great analogy
