Crossing the Waters

For my first attempt at writing a song with words, I found a poem by Sheila Kindred published in a children's magazine that seemed to be a good candidate for music. After the piece was written, I was able to contact Sheila and share it with her. She said she had actually envisioned the poem as a song when she wrote it! I did a SAB arrangement for our church choir and two of her daughters were able to come to McMinnville to hear it performed.
