Come Closer has beautiful, evocative poetry that expresses amazement and wonder at the beauty of nature. The text evokes wonderful pictures from nature including a little singing bird, to water in a stream that turns to snow and ice in the winter, to a tree that began as a sapling that grows “ten times as big as me.” It has excellent challenges for phrasing with long, legato lines that help to expand breath capacity and requires a close attention to diction.
