Images of songs

Music makes pictures and often tells stories- John Denver

Took these pics today and they reminded me of these songs.

Morning has broken...
like the first morning,
Blackbird has spoken,
like the first bird.
Praise for the singing,
Praise for the morning,
Praise for them springing fresh from the world.

- originally written as a hymn by Eleanor Farjeon/arranged and sung by Cat Stevens

All my bags are packed
I'm ready to go
I'm standin here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin
It's early morn
The taxi's waitin
He's blowin his horn
Already I'm so lonesome
I could die
So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go...

- written by John Denver/made popular the first time by Peter, Paul, and Mary, and then again when featured in the movie Armageddon

What beautiful pictures! It must be lovely to wake up in your part of the world.

Both those songs are absolute classics, aren't they?

Have a fantastic day Susan!

Your dawn picture makes me want to get up early tomorrow morning! Beautiful rosy sky! Nice idea to take "pictures of songs." Which came first - the song (and then you went and shot a representative photo?) or the photo (after which you thought of a representative song?) It's like musicals -- I always have wondered whether they write the lyrics first, and then the music; or the tune first, and then fit the lyrics to the music. One of life's little mysteries...

I wish there was a word that meant more then beautiful. Had to go for a follow up mammogram this morning and reading your post made me feel better though I may shed a tear before the morning is over.
