100 Days of Practice Round 2 Day 79: At the Rising of the Moon....


Happy New Year from the Lindsays! We wish you a joyful 2010, full of hopeful sunrises, peaceful sunsets, resolutions met, the company of friends, and music to lift you and feed you.

It's a good time to revisit the words of one of our favorite songs: The Rising of the Moon....

As we wander through the universe, on this dark winter's night
The children they’re all dancing and the stars are shining bright
One more word must now be spoken, or sung to an old tune
Let's all dance the dance of freedom at the rising of the moon

So we gaze unto the stars that shine with wonder in our eyes
Will we just destroy the planet, or is peace to be the price?
'Cause the wall of fighting nations dims the beauty of the tune
Let’s all dance the dance of freedom at the rising of the moon

At the rising of the moon, at the rising of the moon
Let’s be friends this new year coming at the rising of the moon


May the wisdom of the ancients with their messages and signs
Come to shine on our tomorrows with the magic of their time
Like a star that shone on the wisemen, like the dawn that’s coming soon
It’s the truth that guides us onwards at the rising of the moon

We can live within God's garden if we tend her with our care
We can understand the meaning and the motives of the fair
Though we stumble through the darkness, trying far too much too soon
Let’s all stand up and be counted at the rising of the moon

At the rising of the moon, at the rising of the moon
Let’s all stand up and be counted at the rising of the moon
