The Wonderful Wingiggle of Wishing (Laura Rosenkranz & Alimar)

Get Flash to see this player.

A collaboration from the way-back machine, posted at least once or twice on Alimar's page and/or mine. My daughter wrote this poem in college (early 1990s). I asked Alimar if he would add an accompaniment, which he graciously did. There is a fuller musical composition that Alimar did (I have it somewhere). But this is not that. So, I hope this listen will be a fun little diversion...

Lyrics are from "The Wonderful Wingiggle of Wishing" by Laura (Miller) Rosenkranz. Music by Alimar. Vocal and music arranged by Jack Miller

By the way, my daughter is also an accomplished artist. The song art is from her hand.

The Wonderful Wingiggle of Wishing

[To be read in the mindset of The Jabberwokky]

With a soowee the clucherfluff
wished through the ganderwatch,
tiddling and ree-teeing over the land.

Below him the watcherly ride-hooters
skippled and perlunked
from dinrun to splishfall.

"Hareee!" cheed the cluckerfluff,
preeling the wonderful wingiggle
of wishing alone above it all!

Finally, the cluckerfluff,
chickled and yooed, diving and kurflicking
back down to the ganderwatch.

The ride-hooters reeped and wunched
when they saw him.
"Yo too," they jickled
"Sore pertily wishing!"

Hayrightly he glee-trinied
and tune-fuffered for them.
They yortled and banterly ootled his tricks.

But then a harfugly mudwuncher skunched
towards the kee-sheeing fide-hooters.
"Kore Gutchrock!" he dorted,
"NO friskily wishing!"

Then piskly the mudwuncher
yooed to the cluckerfluff.
"Too unklee borb wishing
and gunch down fricktly!"

With a fruch
and a lingering wee-chittering haroo
the cluckerfluff siddled and pillfiffered down,
And oomphing the mudwuncher frooched him away.

The ride-hooters roo-chooed
and frumed their disbrukness
"He was a pertily cluckerfluff,
wishing and chee-cheeing."

Classic children's fantasy language. Great for enunciation, as well. Laura does a fine job with it and Alimar's whimsical accompaniment is just right. Thanks for posting this.
