The poem is below.



Zealous was he in every way
Young Danny loved life more each day
Xylophone he played so well
Within his dreams the boy did dwell
Very much he loved to sing
Under all the many things
That he really loved to be
Singer most of all was he
Rivers were his favourite sites
Quietly he would gain delight
Peering at the forest trees
Oh how they danced upon the breeze
Nothing it did thrill him more
Mostly this lad did adore
Looking at each splendid show
Kind of made his feelings glow
Just a moment by a river
It did such love to him deliver
Happy he was just to be
God he everywhere did see
Friends, he never cared for much
Even though folk’s hearts he’d touch
Danny liked to be alone
Creating, always on his own
Being a peaceful loving man
Always this, it was our Dan
