At most of the HumanLight celebrations I've attended, the songs had unfamiliar and difficult melodies. The song leader ended up singing virtually solo while attendees struggled with lyric sheets. Here's a song I wrote a few years ago, to a familiar tune.

Blue Kazoo

Lyrics: Ruth Anthony-Gardner

To the tune of "Jingle Bells"

December's greatest day
The snow's a lot of fluff
White Pines along our way
Like cotton to the touch

Gold glints the Honor Net
Across my arm so light
What fun to celebrate with friends
On Happy HumanLight


Blue kazoo, gold kazoo
Tickle as they hum
Our moonlit way to celebrate
With fellowship and fun

HumanLight, HumanLight
People are what's real
2,000 years of balderdash
It's time for a new deal

Wood smoke upon the breeze

We hug and hold on tight
We kick the fluff with ease
As drums call into night

Their rhythm moves our feet
We're almost feeling high
What fun to celebrate with friends
On Happy HumanLight

That is a beautiful song Ruth! You are really talented at lyric writing. I just wish I could hear it performed.

Ruth:  I appreciate your contributions to the group, but please don't create a new discussion for everything pertaining to Humanlight or any other celebration.  There was already a Humanlight discussion started.  It would have been helpful to group organization to have all your Humanlight contributions added to that discussion.
