Nim’s song for Selkie

Since I’ve been busy with a new character today, Nim said I could put up the song she wrote for Selkie.

Selkie’s Song
Swimming with Selkie in the sea

Feels so wild and feels so free
Dolphins leap and fishes flee
When I’m swimming with Selkie in the sea.
Snuggling with Selkie in the night
When shadows are dark 
           and the moon is bright
Selkie whuffles that we’re all right
When I’m snuggling with Selkie in the night.

From the Film Nim’s Island, Walden Media 2008
