Peaceful

Whenever I look up at the sky, I feel peaceful.

The sky is an ever changing canvass of beautiful colors, with the clouds giving awesome shapes. Sunrises, sunsets, storms or clear blue skies, I love them all. I like the night sky, with the twinkling stars, the moon glow, and the deep black or indigo colors. It’s dream time, any time looking at the sky. It’s free, it’s magnificent, it’s awe inspiring.

Well, I couldn’t think of anything at first, so looked on some lists for songs using the prompt word. I did find a few good ones, and even one I hadn’t heard before tht was cute and catchy about a first love that had ended. Also, one that I remember from way back, about a true love/first love. I had them both on here, but then… then… I found this one, and it is one I’ve heard many times, and love most all the artist’s songs. It fits the prompt very well, I think.

What put it over the top, and became my entry, was the video. It has kitties & birds! They are so adorable, I couldn’t resist. Hope you like it, too. 🙂

Where Do the Children Play – Song Lyric Sunday

Standard

Where Do the Children Play – Song Lyric Sunday

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 2/18/18

***

For SLS today, Helen has suggested songs about the Earth. There’s many ways to interpret this, as in saving Earth’s resources, Earth Day activities, world peace, going green, and many others.

My thoughts on this song is that yes, we’ve come a long way in commerce and technology, but at what price? More and more green spaces are being taken over by the progression of more buildings, and concrete everywhere. Wilderness areas are slowly disappearing, wildlife is being forced out, and pollution is everywhere. This seems to benefit nobody, in my opinion. Indeed, where do the children have left to play?

Thanks for the prompt, Helen!

“Where Do the Children Play”, by Cat Stevens, can be found on his album, “Tea For the Tillerman”. It was released in 1970, was written by Cat Stevens, and is on the Island Records label.

Where Do The Children Play
Well I think it’s fine, building jumbo planes.
Or taking a ride on a cosmic train.
Switch on summer from a slot machine.
Yes, get what you want to if you want,
Cause you can get anything.
I know we’ve come a long way,
We’re changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?
Well you roll on roads over fresh green grass.
For your lorry loads pumping petrol gas.
And you make them long, and you make them tough.
But they just go on and on, and it seems that you can’t get off.
Oh, I know we’ve come a long way,
We’re changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?
Well you’ve cracked the sky, scrapers fill the air.
But will you keep on building higher
‘Til there’s no more room up there?
Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry?
Will you tell us when to live, will you tell us when to die?
I know we’ve come a long way,
We’re changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?
