The Wattle Tree



Winter is not yet gone - but now

The birds are carolling from the bough.

And the mist has rolled away

Leaving more beautiful the day.

The sun is out - O come with me

To look upon the wattle tree!



Let misers hoard and hide their gold;

Here there is treasure-trove untold,

In yellow blossom, mass on mass

Spread out for wayfarers who pass

With hearts to feel, and eyes to see

How lovely is the wattle tree.



O strange, O magical! to forget

For a moment care and fret,

Whilst the next spirit, like a cup

Drained of delight, again fills up

And overflows with ecstasy

Before the miracle of the tree.



And rich and poor, who pause to bless

The shining tree in thankfulness,

Are bound in fellowship indeed.

What matter politics or creed,

Or class or colour? surely he

Loves mankind who loves a Tree!



Towards illimitable skies

From the earth the trees arise:

Givers of Joy, their gold and green

Against the blue of Heaven is seen.

A symbol of man's destiny

Is the blossoming the wattle tree.



Winter is not yet gone - but now

The birds are carolling from the bough.

And the mist has rolled away

Leaving more beautiful the day.

The sun is out - O come with me

To look upon the wattle tree!

 

Don't waste a day, not while your breathing.

An amazing performance that many here can relate to...Hahahahahaha


Julie Andrews Turns 69, this is hysterical   
 
To commemorate her birthday , actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special appearance at  Manhattan 's  Radio   City   Music Hall for the benefit of the AARP.   One of the musical numbers she performed was 'My Favorite Things'  from the legendary movie 'Sound Of Music'.   Here are the lyrics she used:
 

 
(Sing It!  - If you sing it, its especially hysterical!!!)   

Botox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and  handrails and new dental fittings,
Bundles of magazines tied up in string,
  These are a few of my favorite things.

Cadillacs and cataracts, hearing aids and glasses,
Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
  These are a few of my favorite things.

When the pipes leak, When the bones creak,
When the knees go bad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
     And then I don't feel so bad.

Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions,
No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring,
    These are a few of my favorite things.

Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin',
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',   
And we won't mention our short shrunken frames,
  When we remember our favorite things.

When the joints ache, When the hips break,
     When the eyes grow dim,
Then I remember the great life I've had,
     And then I don't feel so bad.
> > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > >> >
Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd that lasted over four minutes and repeated encores. Please share Ms. Andrews' clever wit and humour with others who would appreciate it!


Enjoy CD...Grrr!!!! Grin
