Rain and Lilacs

Lilacs

Is it too late to be bothered fixing up flower beds for this year?  (Please say yes.) The tiger lilies and the dogwood thrive despite my neglect but some other plants are looking dejected and thirsty and mostly dead.  In a previous life I must have had gardeners.  My ambition gets stuck in neutral and all I want to do is big fat nothing when I get home from work and just looking at the yard makes me tired.

But it’s a mercifully short work day today and I’m hoping to get more accomplished than sleeping through the entire afternoon, tempting as that might sound.

The rain has rained itself out for now, the lilacs next door are blooming and the breeze is blowing their delightful scent through my window.  Now there’s something you can’t buy in a spray bottle.

This song has been rolling around in my head this morning and I can’t seem to get rid of it.  Don’t you kind of hate it when that happens?  There’s no real cure, but sharing seems to ease the pain.

So there you go – it’s all yours now. Complete with lyrics so you can sing along.  You’re welcome.

Three Sing-Along Songs

La la la la…. Loooooove those sappy love songs…..

Poetry Man by Phoebe Snow

Ooooo, ya ya ya Ooooo, ya

You make me laugh
‘Cause your eyes they light the night
They look right through me, la, la, la la
You bashful boy
You’re hiding something sweet
Please give it to me, yeah
Ooh, oh, talk to me some more
You don’t have to go
You’re the Poetry Man
You make things all right, ya, ya

Ooooo, ya ya ya  Ooooo, ya
You are a genie
And all I ask for is your smile
Each time I rub the lamp, la, la, la la
When I am with you
I have a giggling teen-age crush
Then I’m a sultry vamp, ya

Talk to me some more
You don’t have to go
You’re the Poetry Man
You make things all right
ya ya

Etta James by At Last

 At last, my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song
Oh, yeah, at last
The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clover
The night I looked at you
I found a dream that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to rest my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known
Oh, yeah when you smiled, you smiled
Oh, and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine
At last

Songbird by Eva Cassidy

 For you there’ll be no crying
For you the sun will be shining
Cause I feel that when I’m with you
It’s alright, I know it’s right

And the songbirds keep singing
Like they know the score
And I love you, I love you, I love you
Like never before

To you, I would give the world
To you, I’d never be cold
Cause I feel that when I’m with you
It’s alright, I know it’s right
