Liz - Derrick, Thank you so very much for your poem, this is beautiful.
Derrick Bwihambi - Hi there,
Every time I wake up in the morning I listen to different melodies sing by birds. I usually wanted to see these birds but I can’t. It is the time I have to go to work or to school. I don’t know the birds but I know their melodies.
Today, similar thing is happening through SheppSounds. Indeed, in different way. We can see their birds but we cannot listen to their melodies. Their birds are dressed very nice. Which sounds or melodies your birds have. We are thirsty! We need to hear their voices.
I feel this sounds to be tremendous, unique and splendid.
We are waiting, patiently sitting looking left and right.
Please let us know where the voice will come from. Shepp East? Shepp West? Shepp North? or South?
Yes, were waiting.
This is my poem for SheppSounds
tony - Youre an absolute goddess
