Tuesday’s A to Z challenge: “D”
Published on Nov 2, 2012
A TRIBUTE TO THOSE LEFT BEHIND AT THE END OF A WAR
A family invests years of love and devotion in a child and watches that little one grow to adulthood and serve our beloved country . . . In the end we get a tri-folded flag that will never fly again . . . Ironic ? . . . Let there be no more war
(My link does not seem to work. I would have played the song from
Jackie Evancho: Danny Boy (
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer’s gone, and all the roses falling
It’s you, it’s you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer’s in the meadow
Or when the valley’s hushed and white with snow
It’s I’ll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.
But when ye come, and all the flowers are dying
If I am dead, as dead I well may be
Ye’ll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an ave there for me.
And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me
And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be
For you will bend and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.
I hope this link works:
Thank you It works. Don’t know where the problem lies! 🙂
The saddest song, isn’t it? When will there ever be peace? The world news is a nightmare!
Yes, It is and we still have wars and deaths every day!
We are currently featuring books on War and Peace, and this song fits perfectly! Thank you for sharing this. It’s a sad song but it’s a reminder that man has yet to achieve peace in the world.
Thanks, glad it helps to remind al of us to work for peace not towards war.
I do love the words and tune of Danny Boy, but it is very sad.
Yes I agree!
Such a sad song – I never realised.
Yes I also did not know what it was about till now. It is a beautiful song.
