I’d love to get feedback on this! After spending a while recording and mixing everything myself it’d be great to know what people think! :)

The darling kite (with recording)

February 16, 2021

https://soundcloud.com/isla-hutchins/the-darling-kite


A bundle of twigs,
Tied together with string,
Wrapped in soft cotton,
Acts like a wing.

Off to the runway,
With the rush of the breeze,
She's up and away,
floating above the trees.

So come on, darling,
Let's fly through the air,
Let's fly through the air,
Soar the sky, with no care,
We'll give the clouds, the last word,
When we're off, with the bluebirds,
Off with the blue birds, 
Their song will be heard.

She's filled with grace,
In every way,
The darling glider twirls,
A magnificent display.

Just a bundle of twigs,
Ties together with string,
Wrapped in soft cotton,
Acts like a wing.

So come on, darling,
Let's fly through the air,
Let's fly through the air,
Soar the sky, with no care,
We'll give the clouds, the last word,
When we're off, with the bluebirds,
Off with the blue birds, 
Their song will be heard.

    Oh wow, your recording is just beautiful and so well arranged! All of those harmonies and the sound of the birds - it was so wonderfully serene. I felt like I was standing there next to that person and their kite!

    Wow! This is really good! I will mention though that you repeated the last verse in the recording, but not in the text. Do you think that would matter for the competition? I'm not sure. Whatever you think.
