Sunshine’s Serenade


Tympani tap out your beat,

pitter-patter at my feet,

notes that songbirds’ trills repeat,

raindrops unafraid.

Drips and drops in double time,

church-bells’ cheerful childhood chime,

sweet percussion, Springtime rhyme,

Sunshine’s Serenade.

      I’m singing long! πŸ™‚

    • melodylowes says:

      By the way – how do you make notes???

      • Gallivanta says:

        By luck mostly. On my laptop keyboard I press FN and ALT and then I press numbers on the numerical keypad which is incorporated in to the main keyboard. β™ͺ is made with FN and ALT and 1 and 3. But I told that to another friend and it didn’t work on her keyboard! There’s another way to get notes and other merry things but I haven’t had my morning coffee yet and my brain needs to think some more about that.

      • melodylowes says:

        πŸ™‚ After some coffee, let me know some of those merry things!

      • Gallivanta says:

        My computer runs on Vista so is a bit ancient but this is how I access merry things. I use Character Map.

        Click the Start button , click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click Character Map. β™ͺβ™ͺβ™« †♦ ΒΏΒΏ ╬ βˆ‘ β˜‚ ☎ The only problem is that some of these characters don’t always show up on the other person’s computer. Let me know if you see any symbols. I have typed in 11 different symbols.

        I see all sorts of fun things – notes and umbrellas and a telephone! πŸ™‚ Ooh, thanks! I never knew such a thing existed before!! β™« Look – now I can sing, too! πŸ™‚

      • Gallivanta says:

        Hooray hooray. I am so happy it worked. Some of the fonts on Character Map work better than others. It’s a matter of experimentation. I think MS PMincho font works well I think.That’s where I found the umbrella and the phone.
