Today's song/Swallow Song

Even though there is no motion, I love this you tube of Vashti Bunyan singing Swallow Song. You see her face, and hear that ethereal, so beautiful voice.

And there’s a sunset brimming over the sky
And there’s a swallow teaching its young how to fly
Up on high
See how fast the summer passes by

And there’s an oak leaf turning green into brown
And there’s a pine so proud of her evergreen gown
Looking down
See how fast the winter comes around

And there’s a rain cloud passing over our heads
And there’s a cat on the doorstep waiting to be fed
Milk and bread
Day is done and now it’s time for bed


  1. Oh thank you, Nan. I really do love this. It's so pretty and peaceful. Just what I love.

  2. Aw, you know how I love Vashti. Such a gentle song.

  3. I am unfamiliar with her, and this was lovely.


Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
