Happy St Patrick's Day


O Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side.
The summer's gone and all the roses falling;
It's you, it's you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow,
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow.
And I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow;
Oh Danny Boy, oh Danny Boy, I love you so!

But when ye come, and all the flow'rs are dying,
And I am dead, as dead I well may be.
Ye'll come and find the place where I am lying,
And kneel and say an Ave there for me.

And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me;
And all my grace will warmer, sweeter be,
For you will bend and tell me that you love me;
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me!

By gosh an B'gorah, "Danny Boy" has always been my favorite Irish song.

I loved that link for the Celtic Cross.

Danny Boy is such a wonderful tribute our loved ones gone before us. I posted the video by Roy Orbison on my blog. I hope you take a look. Happy Saint Pattys Day!
