Song Lyric Sunday : Summer

The very  talented  Helen at  This  Thing called  Life One Word  at a Time  told us  that : The theme for Song Lyric Sunday on June 19th is “Summer“.  Pick a song that makes you think of summer, that has the word in the title or lyrics, or pick one of your own that has nothing to do with the theme.  We’re all open to sharing and listening to new, amazing music.  Most of all, just enjoy the process.

Rules  and  pingback here 

And  here

So which ¬†song is ¬†most ¬†evocative ¬†of ¬†summer ¬†in my ¬†mind ? Well ¬†there ¬†are ¬†many ¬†in fact ¬†too numerous ¬†to ¬†mention. So I ¬†closed ¬†my eyes ¬†and ¬†let ¬†my ¬†mind ¬†slip off to ¬†wherever ¬†as ¬†I thought ¬†of ¬†summer. The ¬†first ¬†song ¬†that ¬†entered ¬†my ¬†head was ¬†Summer ¬†Breeze ¬†, and it was not ¬†the Isley ¬†Brother’s ¬† version ¬†but ¬†the ¬†beautiful ¬†Seals ¬†and Croft version I ¬†was hearing. The ¬†song ¬†takes ¬†me back ¬†to 1972 ¬†the ¬†year ¬†after ¬†I ¬†got ¬†married. Happy ¬†carefree days.

So  here  we are  please  enjoy!

SUMMER BREEZE

See the curtains hangin’ in the window
In the evenin’ on a Friday night
Little light is shinin’ through the window
Lets me know everything’s alright

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind

See the paper layin’ on the sidewalk
A little music from the house next door
So I walked on up to the doorstep
Through the screen and across the floor

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind

Sweet days of summer, the jasmine’s in bloom
July is dressed up and playing her tune
And I come home from a hard day’s work
And you’re waiting there, not a care in the world

See the smile awaitin’ in the kitchen
Food cookin’ in the plates for two
Feel the arms that reach out to hold me
In the evening when the day is through

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind

Father’s Day:The Quiet Man

HAPPY ¬†FATHER’S DAY ¬†TO FATHERS EVERYWHERE

I  make  no  apology  for  bringing  this  poem out  again, after all I only  had  one  father  and  this  was  the  first  poem I  wrote  about  him. 

A tribute to my Father ¬†1905 ‚Äď 1976

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

He was a quiet man, he was a helpful caring man.

Handsome in his youth a dashing man,a fighter for rights.

A union man, a fighting for the under dog man, a ‚ÄúI‚Äôll do it if I can man‚ÄĚ .

He met my Mum, a wooing man, a handsome flashing eyed Irishman.

A black haired almost wild man, a stand up for what I am man.

A good man to trust your life to and my Mum did,

my Dad

He was an out in the open man. What see is what you get man, nothing  hid.

He worked hard he was a family man. A sturdy, bring home the wages man,

A giver, comforter, a lover man. A home maker man some one to carry the can man.

A there until the end man.

He was a stern man, when you had done wrong, though he was a quick to praise man.

A happy to teach you a lessen in a song man. A teacher man,sometimes a preacher man

An always there when it counted man. He was a father of the bride man, and he handed all his daughters away.

He was the man who supported his sons when they became the married men.

 

He was a support man, and adviser man the lover of lilies of the valley man.

He was reunited with my Mum man when they saw us all gone.

He was a plain man to the end man, not a flourish and bouquet,

Nor a black magic man,an honest to the end man.

He was a deaf man, but he heard what was important man!

At the end, a blind man, in stature a tiny man in truth a giant man.

A truly missed man , a wish you where here man.

He is a gone but not a forgotten man.lily_of_the_valley_777
