A-Z Tuesday : Letter D = Danny Boy

I can’t link!

 

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 (

Lyrics

Danny Boy”

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
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.

May there be peace in the world again!

  1. 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.
