'The Lullaby Of Spring'



In celebration of the welcome arrival of the vernal equinox ~ one of my favourite songs ~

"Rain has showered far her drip
Splash and trickle running,
Plant has flowered in the sand
Shell and pebble sunning.

So begins another spring,
Green leaves and of berries,
Chiff-chaff eggs are painted by
Mother bird eating cherries.

In the misty tangled sky
Fast a wind is blowing,
In the new-born rabbit's heart
River life is flowing.

So begins another spring,
Green leaves and of berries,
Chiff-chaff eggs are painted by
Mother bird eating cherries.

From the dark and wetted soil,
Petals are unfolding.
From the stony village kirk,
Easter bells of old ring.

So begins another spring,
Green leaves and of berries,
Chiff-chaff eggs are painted by
Mother bird eating cherries.

Rain has showered far her drip
Splash and trickle running,
Plant has flowered in the sand
Shell and pebble sunning.

So begins another spring,
Green leaves and of berries,
Chiff-chaff eggs are painted by
Mother bird eating cherries."

  3. Perfect song for the beginning of Spring Anna - good to hear Donovan's dulcet tones again!

    Your post about the French Garden Festival has blown me away! So beautiful and a tad quirky - which is good! Those fairytale chateaux remind me of our lovely holiday in France last year ... sigh
