Taken on one very cold yet beautiful morning. Mount Barker Summit can be seen in the distance.

I thought it would be nice to put one of my favorite photographs & one of my favorite songs together:

Craigie Hill by Cara Dillon

It being in the springtime and the small birds they were singing,
Down by yon shady harbour I carelessly did stray,
The the thrushes they were warbling,
The violets they were charming
To view fond lovers talking, a while I did delay.

She said, my dear don’t leave me all for another season,
Though fortune does be pleasing I ’ll go along with you,
I ’ll forsake friends and relations and bid this Irish nation,
And to the bonny Bann banks forever I ’ll bid adieu.

He said, my dear don’t grieve or yet annoy my patience,
You know I love you dearly the more I’m going away,
I’m going to a foreign nation to purchase a plantation,
To comfort us hereafter all in Amerika y.

Then after a short while a fortune does be pleasing,
T’will cause them for smile at our late going away,
We’ll be happy as Queen Victoria, all in her greatest glory,
We’ll be drinking wine and porter all in Amerika y.

If you were in your bed lying and thinking on dying,
The sight of the lovely Bann banks, your sorrow you’d give o’er,
Or if were down one hour, down in yon shady bower,
Pleasure would surround you, you’d think on death no more.

Then fare you well, sweet Cragie Hills, where often times I’ve roved,
I never thought my childhood days I ‘d part you any more,
Now we’re sailing on the ocean for honour and promotion,
And the bonny boats are sailing, way down by Doorin shore.

    I can see why you love the hills Leanne. I must make an effort to get up early this winter and go driving with the camera up there. Lovely capture.
