Prompt- You’re asked to recite a poem (or song lyrics) from memory — what’s the first one that comes to mind? Does it have a special meaning, or is there another reason it has stayed, intact, in your mind?
Prayer of the Children This is the first song that comes to mind as having memorized it while I was in choir. This is a recording by Three Dog Night. My choir instructor taught it every year and every year we preformed it as a choir. She told some of us that the reason for this is because when she dies she wants everyone who comes to be able to sing it at her funeral. Being in high school at the time this stuck with me and I will remember it for a long time.
