Pure Poetry

Ladies and gentleman, I interupt this Week of Fanatical Dress to bring you one of the most beautiful and moving songs I have ever heard. Here is a music video with it on there, and it also is now playing in my music playlist.



Lyrics are as follows. Hope you cry.

HOMEWARD BOUND
Words and Music by Marta Keen

In the quiet misty morning, when the moon has gone to bed,
When the sparrows stop their singing and the sky is clear and red,
When the summer's ceased its gleaming, when the corn is past its prime,
When adventure's lost its meaning, I'll be homeward bound in time.

Bind me not to the pasture. Chain me not to the plow.
Set me free to find my calling and I'll return to you somehow.

If you find it's me you're missing, if you're hoping I'll return,
To your thought I'll soon be list'ning; in the road I'll stop and turn.
Then the wind will set me racing as my journey nears its end,
And the path I'll be retracing when I'm homeward bound again.

Bind me not to the pasture. Chain me not to the plow.
Set me free to find my calling and I'll return to you somehow.

In the quiet misty morning when the moon has gone to bed,
When the sparrows stop their singing, I'll be homeward bound again.

  1. *silent crying* That's right I cried. I am serious I still have the tears on my face as I write this. That was beautiful, Lady Rose. Thank you for sharing that. God bless our troops!
