Tuesday’s A to Z challenge: “D”

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!

Sunday Stills : Music – Tulips from Amsterdam

 

Spring is here! We have beautiful flowers in our round -a-bouts  in Upper Hutt. At the moments they are full with tulips in bloom. The weather played against me again. It started raining – no sunshine! I still took photos because I was in the mood doing it.

TULIPS FROM AMSTERDAM

When it’s Spring again I’ll bring again
Tulips from Amsterdam
With a heart thats true I’ll give to you
Tulips from Amsterdam
I can’t wait until the day you fill
These eager arms of mine
Like the windmill keeps on turning
That’s how my heart keeps on yearning
For the day I know we can share these
Tulips from Amsterdam

When it’s Spring again I’ll bring again

I can’t wait until the day you fill
These eager arms of mine
Like the windmill keeps on turning
That’s how my heart keeps on yearning
For the day I know we can share these
Tulips from Amsterdam
