"My love
of rhythm, language, song,
and a juicy story

Is the breath,
(the wind in the sails)

For performances... (the boat)

That celebrates the magic
In the ordinary world,

The poetry in the moment,
The song in the story
The timing of a journey
on the pages, sea?
Song is the water for the story boat."
Angela Lloyd
