One for Winter/ Colrain

© Cindy Kallet and Gordon Bok, BMI

 

We were looking for a song to sing alongside a favorite tune, Colrain.  Since we couldn't think of one we knew, we made one up.  We're still not sure how it came together, or how many more times it will change…

As I looked out on the April rain

Come down the valley streaming

I counted the winter days alone

And spring was a long time coming

 

            One for winter, two for spring

            Three for the evening sky

            All you need is a little sign

            But spring is a candle in the wind

                Hey-o, say-o, oh for the joy you bring

 

I come over the Sharon Hills

The mountain stone a'shining

And all the world was wild with rain

And the mountain grass a'greening

 

There's days I sing and days I don't

And days I let go by

And days I long to walk these roads

And see the kestrel fly-o

 

            One for winter, two for spring

            Three for the evening sky

            All you need is a little sign

            The warm and the wind to blow you home

                Hey-o, say-o…

 

There's days I dance and days I don't

And days I watch the rain

And days the littlest lead will shine

And the smallest bird will sing

 

As I come over the hills of home

I heard the kestrel cry

And all the hills gave on the song

And the word was full of sky-o

 

            One for winter, two for spring

            Three for the evening sky

            All you need is a little sign

            And all the world will breathe again

                Hey-o, say-o….
