May it Be

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk a lonely road
Oh! How far you are from home

Mornie utulie (Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantie (Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadow’s call
Will fly away
May it be you journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornie utulie (Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way

Mornie alantie (Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

A promise lives within you now

“May it Be” by Enya

“Sing to me, O Muse . . .”

I decided to make Monday the traditional “share-a-favorite-song” day and thereby succumb to bloggish cliche. Because, I mean, who does not like music? The message in the harmony of sounds, the haunting melody which lingers in your mind hours, or even days later. I am horribly tempted to resort to the horror of all music-loving horrors and repost a Phantom of the Opera Song, because of course, who doesn’t like the Phantom of the Opera and all of its Gothic disquietude?

1877bcfb777a56855f27540cb646d3b9Before I start off in that darker vein of talk, I’ll hurry up and say a quick word about Today’s Song. I chose this one in honor of my Reading endeavors for 2014. I’m hoping to start reading The Two Towers soon, and finish up the marvelous The Gospels According to Tolkien in short time. All the glory and majesty of Middle Earth returns whenever I click play on this song.
