My notes before I wrote the song "Talking trees".

They were from England originally.  They wanted to buy land there but it was too expensive.  So they moved to Canada.

They have been in Canada for about 2 years and bought 100 acres, 4 goats, 60 chickens and pigs and donkeys, and a Belgium horse to pull a cart.
They have a simple life.  Her husband has an interest in spiritualism and the trees talked to him after arriving in Canada.  The trees told him the story of the Coddle Poppers
.  They are faeries who live in the forest.  She sold her snow mobile to get the funds to come to Maureen's Center and take a class to learn how to make Coddle Poppers from clay.

They live off their animals and they make goat cheese from goat's milk.  They have a dream to make children's lives happier and wise and they want to open their place and let children visit them and the Coddle Poppers.  They want to expose the children to imagination and creativity.

The most exciting thing about their place is that the animals follow them when they go for a walk.  It's a sight to see.

They still have a lot of work to do before opening their place to the visiting children. But they are very excited about the possibilities.


The final lyrics of Talking Trees

Exposing children to imagination
may help them to be happier and wise.
For the trees may tell them the secrets of life.
Now wouldn't that be a surprise?

There's a family who lives on a farm,
and their life is very plain.
But the chickens and donkeys follow them
when they walk down their lane.

For this is a special place
where children can all come to see
all the animals and the Coddle Poppers

and maybe a talking tree.


Bringing all kinds of things to life
is every kids forte.
And exposing them to imagination
is the Coddle Poppers

The little faeries live in the woods.
The trees told them one day.
They want the children to visit
and be creative, for they love to play.

It is very hard to see them.
That is what the trees sometimes say.
So they told the humans what they look like.
Now their likeness is made from clay.


So please come visit this special place
where kids and Coddle Poppers
And open your mind and maybe take a walk
For the animals can hardly wait.
