When we had a long walk in the fields of gold,

  • on: February 22, 2012, 07:02:59 AM
When we had a long walk in the fields of gold,
When we witnessed the flowers of Spring awakening,
My little girl said to me: “just imagine that I was a bird!”
“Why a bird?” I asked.
“Uhm, a bird can fly high, can go everywhere it wants and can see the earth from high above and it can really see how beautiful nature is, which feels awesome I think”, she said.
“That sounds wonderful, I’d love that too”, I said.
She said: “I’d really wish that everyone would be a bird for just one day”.
“Why do you wish that?” I asked.
“Well, if everyone could see how beautiful nature is, they will realize more that it shouldn’t be destroyed and so there will be less pollution.”
“That’s true, I love your wish”, I said and I gave her a big hug.
I remember when I was her age I had the same thoughts.   :icon_e_smile: :icon_cry:

     :bearhug:
LOVE to you

Lovely words everlasting. They reminded me of the lyrics of a song I haven't heard since 1980 from The Imperials.
Quote
I stood and watched an eagle fly
Spread his wings and soar across the sky
So gracefully he flew
Rising effortlessly
I wanted to know just how to be free

Tiny fingers curled 'round mine
Perfectly formed; new born
The image of two
Infinite mystery
I wanted to know were life comes from

What human intellect can't sway
Must be explained this way
Earth wisdom, religions of men
Searched without end to find the spirit house within
Simplicity of God somehow escapes man

ooh ooh ooh...

I reach for the eternal one
Creation he was waiting to renew
His purpose in me
He said this is were life begins
I made your spirit to glide on the wind

Come let's fly on the wind
Come on let's fly on the wind
On the wind

Thanks RK and for the beautiful lyrics, the song must be great. I can't recall The Imperials from the 80s  confused/, tried to find the song on YT but didn't succeed.

I can't find the Imperial doing this song on youtube either. Now that is strange. I have found the Gaithers doing an okay version tho. The music and vocals are the same, and if I close my eyes to block out 4 strange looking men in 80's fashion and hair styles then it's all good.  geek/

Love the poem Everlasting, and the video RK!
Brings back memories--I think I may have seen the Imperials perform (saw many groups) I for sure did have a couple of records/cassettes of theirs.  Wa-a-a-y back! :D


When I was a child I used to have vivid regular dreams of flying. I would just jump off a chair, and it was so real--the only scary part was those criss-crossing power lines.

Thank you for sharing your memories MJonmind :) A child can have vivid dreams, imaginations or fears and it's good to listen and to take his/her dreams seriously.
