Sounds of Home – Souvenir

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the May 26th edition of Sounds of Home!

Bright is the Summer Day

Bright is the summer day, gayly we hike away
out to the woods and the meadows,
out from the noisy streets, out to a shady beach,
out where our fancy may take us.

Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la–la-la-la–la-la-la–la-la.
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la–la-la-la-la-la–la-la-la-la-la–la–la

Fresh is the balmy breeze whispering in the trees;
birds on the branches are swinging.
Sudden and silver clear, rises a song of cheer,
that is the meadowlark singing.

Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la–la-la-la–la-la-la–la-la.
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la–la-la-la-la-la–la-la-la-la-la–la–la

Music: Fr. Kuhlau, 1828; from the Light Opera “Elverhøj”
Text: Geo Kæstel, trans. by S.D. Rodholm
