Photographers and Songwriters: At the Grand Canyon We Did See

On the Grand Canyon in Focus trip last week, youth met with the current Grand Canyon Artist-in-Residence, Iris.  The kids wrote their own song about their experiences in the park with her fabulous help!  Check out the song performed by the kids on the balcony of Verkamp’s Visitors Center.

“At the Grand Canyon We Did See”

As I was walking

I saw the River

It was so shocking

I began to quiver

I snapped a picture

Of a brown otter

At the Grand Canyon we did see

 

As we were walking

Down the dusty trail

We saw a lady

She was kinda pale

We gave her water

And her thirsty daughter

At the Grand Canyon we did see

 

A falling sandstone

Into the water

Smashing a cell phone

And broke my backbone

The doctor saved me

I was so happy

At the Grand Canyon and we did see

 

There is a squirrel.

And it was alert

There was a girl

There in the desert

She found a pearl

There in the dirt

At the Grand Canyon we did see

 

A running gray fox

Chasing a bunny

Leaping on red rocks

It looked so funny

Chewing on red socks

Then it got sunny

At the Grand Canyon we did see

 

Where there are flowers

There in the desert

Rain is their showers

Their power hour

Here there are pine trees

Where it will free me

At the Grand Canyon we did see
