Children of the Wind
for chorus (SATB) and piano by Wally Kleucker

Carl Sandburg

I set Carl Sandburg's poem about two purple martins from "The People, Yes" for mixed chorus and piano:

"On the shores of Lake Michigan
high on a wooden pole in a box
two purple martins had a home
and taken away down to Martinique
and let loose, they flew home,
thousands of miles to be home again..."
