Come cows to the sound of my calling, the night draws on the day is done
Come cows for the shadow are falling , I call you one by one
Come Daisy, come Maisy, come Buttercup, Marigold, beautiful Sue
Come Milky and Silky and Flowering May, come you, come you
I was watching a documentary this evening on farming in Kenya and I was reminded of this song we sang at school in our music lesons circa 1987.
As usual, I have had to use Google to refresh my memory from over 20 years ago but I now know that it is by Edvard Grieg, the Norweigian composer. It’s beautiful isn’t it?
This song brings back a flood of memories of starting secondary school – new, alone and a little scared.
Also reminds me that I still have a dream to one day travel to Norway to see those amazing fjords.
One day, one day…
