C&L's Late Night Music Club With Ian Partridge, Tenor

The Fields are Full (English Song)

Sometimes it benefits the mood to take two minutes (or less) to listen to a lovely tune you would not ordinarily seek out. The lyrics to this one are from Edward Shanks:

The fields are full of summer still
And breathe again upon the air
From brown dry side of hedge and hill
More sweetness than the sense can bear.

So some old couple, who in youth
With love were filled and over-full,
And loved with strength and loved with truth,
In heavy age are beautiful.

Have a great week, folks.
