about

This song was written in honor of our daughter's birth mother and her part of the story in the open adoption of our daughter. The song takes its name from the title of a wonderful book we read to our daughter. It's the story of a mother bird that builds a nest in a mulberry tree only to have it torn down by a storm. Mother bird does all she can to protect her but, after continual storms, she chooses a family of sea birds to care for her little one. On clear days her song can still be heard in the sky overhead ("perchickeree... ).

lyrics

THE MULBERRY BIRD

High
above the sea
a lone bird doth sing
“Perchickeree”

A lamentation sweet
she made a nest in the mulberry tree
in wind and storm it would not keep
“Perchickeree”

And for you
she gave the hardest part
a nest for you that would not fall apart
A pair of two that swore to guard your little heart
a gift for you – she gave the hardest part
