Sounds of Home – Rummage Part I

Tuesdays at 2pm

Welcome to the April 7th edition of Sounds of Home.
Due to an outpouring of responses this week, this is the first part of a two – part program on the theme, “Rummage”.

Check back tomorrow, Wednesday, April 8th at 2pm for Part II!

Heart Be Still

Heart, be still, the sun goes down, smiling o’er the meadows.
Sheep and cows are homeward bound
Through the deepening shadows.
Heart, be still, the sun goes down.

Silence falls on lanes and lea, restless day is over;
One belated bumblebee drones among the clover.
Heart, be still, the sun goes down.

Far to East the windows gleam red with flashes blinding;
Sunset colored flows a stream through green pastures winding.
Heart, be still, the sun goes down.

Softly now the haze is stirred from the lowlands lifting;
O’er the treetops skims a bird, fleecy clouds are drifting.
Heart, be still, the sun goes down.
