This morning I was going to show you another beautiful sunrise, and was looking for a nice poem to illustrate my thoughts on the day, however several times while looking for poems on sunrises this song kept coming to my mind to illustrate a happier place in time.

The weather has been so bleak and cold lately, that I needed as well and thought all of you might need a little cheering up, this has always been one of my favorite songs as well as musicals.

So today’s post is~

SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW

Edgar Yipsel Harburg

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
There’s a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true

Some day I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemondrops
Away above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can’t I?

Some day I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemondrops
Away above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can’t I?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can’t I?
