This is a simple, secular piece for the young children’s choir written by a St. Paul composer. It has a recurring whispered phrase, “My ladybug friend!” which begins and ends the piece. In between, there are phrases to lift the voice and work it down so that children can learn to sing in a light, clear ringing tone. The simple, but interesting piano accompaniment imitates fluttering ladybug wings.
