Today… for you whose heart is longing for a breath of peace,
a respite in the clamor…
A Singer is refreshing, with a Love Song (or two) :
“The pastoral mountains front you, face to face, But, courage! For around that boisterous brook The mountains have all opened up themselves, And made a hidden valley of their own. No habitation can be seen; but they Who journey thither find themselves alone With a few sheep, with rocks and stones and kites That overhead are sailing in the sky. It is in truth an utter solitude…”
~ “Michael,” by Wordsworth
“Can’t we two go walking together, out beyond the valley of trees?
Out where there’s a hillside of heather, curtsying gently in the breeze? That’s what I’d like to do: see the heather–but with you.
The mist of May is in the gloaming, and all the clouds are holding still.
So take my hand and let’s go roaming through the heather on the hill.
The morning dew is blinking yonder. There’s lazy music in the rill,
And all I want to do is wander through the heather on the hill.
There may be other days as rich and rare.
There may be other springs as full and fair.
But they won’t be the same–they’ll come and go,
For this I know:
That when the mist is in the gloaming, and all the clouds are holding still,
If you’re not there I won’t go roaming through the heather on the hill…”
~ Brigadoon, Alan Jay Lerner
“Come away with me, my love. Be like an antelope or like a young deer on mountains…” ~ Song of Solomon 8:14, the Lord
What is the song you hear winging around you today?
