For Cat, My Lovely Dear Friend

18 Jun

Where the gentle Avon flows
and a trailing rambler grows
there is a window shining into the night
a window shining into the night
and the casement curtain flutters and glows in candle light

And a girl sits listening there

to a haunting old world aire
as if someone plays so softly below
so softly below, so softly below
she no longer hears the sweet serenade of long ago??????

phantom answer came there none
but she waited on and on
till her window grew bright with dawns early gllow
her window grew bright with dawns early glow
she no longer hears the sweet serenade of love ???????

All the while her wonder grows
as the music comes and goes
ahh what magic makes this rare delight her calling awkes the
midsummer night,
ahh ahhhh ahh ahhh ah ahhhhhh

        Hi Ian, When I go to the mountains I often don’t have internet, so I try to catch up all at once when I return. I do love visiting your blogs and appreciate your visits and comments so much.

    Wonderful morning watching and listening to Eva Lind. I watched quite a bit of her now. Also one song with Joan Sutherland. Amazing that I had never heard of Eva Lind. Shows I’m not very well informed! Thanks, Emu, for introducing her. It made my day. 🙂
    Hope your flu is not so bad any more.

      Greetings Auntyuta, must admit I had never heard of Eva Lind, amazing what you can find browsing youtube, she certainly does have a beautiful voice, glad you enjoyed her.
      Flu is finally going away, ever so slowly though.
      Regards to Peter.

        Peter says thank you. We are glad you’re feeling somewhat better now. Take care!
        Wir hatten eine sehr kalte Nacht. Must be pretty cold in Mildura too?
        From now on with the days getting a bit longer again we hope the sun will slowly getting a bit warmer again too.
        Wishing you all the best! 🙂

          June 22, 2013 at 10:45 am

          Thanks for the visit Auntyuta, yes I am slowly getting over the flu, and missing Ana;s nagging while she is in Chile.
          Cold nights still here in Mildura, I really prefer Summer.
          Wishing you both much love and happiness.

            June 22, 2013 at 9:58 pm

            Oh, we love warm summer days, Ian. We had such a beautiful warm day when we were visiting you in April. When is Ana going to be back? You’re probably counting the days already!
            Cheers, Auntyuta. 🙂

            June 24, 2013 at 11:52 am

            Hi Auntyuta, yes I too miss the warm summer days, still cold here at nights and on and off during the days, but at least we are getting some sunny days now, I still prefer Summer.
            Ana wont be home till the middle of August, she really notices the cold weather over in Chile now and the smog which she now can feel, she is missing our clean , non smog air here in Mildura.
            At least when we go back together in November it will be the start of Chiles Summere, even though it doesnt get as hot as here in Australia.

    And her stood on the wall reminds me of my abject fear of heights!!! 🙂

    I don’t fear falling, it’s the bit when you hit the ground that bothers me!!! 🙂

    God Bless!

      Falling does fair put the wind up my kilt too Prenin.
      Hope I can still get the nerve to go on the next attempt at ballooning.

      My pleasure Dear Cat, hope its the version you were speaking about.

        June 20, 2013 at 3:30 pm

        Not really, but it’s beautiful, nonetheless … I was speaking of the instrumental version by Mantovani, also to be found on youtube …

        • The Emu

          June 22, 2013 at 10:16 am

          Hope you like the latest Mantovani video clip I posted Cat.
          Takes me a bit to get around this youtube stuff.
          Wishing you well girl.
          Keep smiling
