Wild Mountain Thyme Grows Around The Blooming Heather

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: CINNAMON/MINT/PARSLEY/PEPPER.ROSEMARY/SAGE/SALT/THYME

Herbs, Flavoring, Seasoning, IngredientI am going to admit, this theme messed with my mind. One half of my brain was totally into anything that sounded like “Scarborough Fair”…(once you have that in your head, it’s hard to see passed!) The other half of my brain was stuck with the sensational Salt & Pepper – I think I have listened to most of their discography this past week! (Whatta man whatta man whatta mighty good man.)

Well…I have decided to give you double trouble this week. But first all I am going with a song that may be very popular this week, “Wild Mountain Thyme”. I could have picked The Byrds, or Ed Sheeran, or a host of other artists who have covered this charming song. I have picked a female singer because I thought it was a very nice version.

Thyme, German Wild Flower, Tiny FlowersIt’s a lovely chilled way to start the day…and I need to be chilled at the moment. The tiredness from work is building. My travel agent is ignoring my questions about my £900 ticket for a flight that I am sure the Australian government will not allow me to take. Jack is still keen to stay out in Africa where he can do lots of work and be with people and have an amazing time (I love him for loving life out there, he has been washing himself and his clothes with a bucket of water for months and he is as happy as can be.) He had a bit of trouble when he was supposed to cross a border to sort out his visa, but he seems to have sweet talked himself out of being extradited! Jack!

So I am happy to start the day on a calm and lovely note. Don’t you long to be out rambling over moorland or hilltop ranges? I am looking forward to going hiking again with friends. I sense a camping trip is ahead. But none of us want to be part of a huge wave of tourists that will overwhelm rural communities and put them at risk. We are all trying to be careful. Anyway…we can look forward to the future when a healthy human family and a thriving earth, with thriving creatures and all beat together to the same tune. 

 

Oh the summer time is coming
And the trees are sweetly blooming
Where the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather
Would you go, laddie, go?

And we’ll all go together
Where the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather
Would you go, laddie, go?

And I will build my love a bower
And yon pure crystal fountain
And around it I will place
All the colours of the mountain
Would you go, laddie, go?

And we’ll all go together
Where the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather
Would you go, laddie, go?

And If my true love’s gone
I will surely find another
And to him I will sing
Things that make him know I want him

Would you go, laddie, go?
And we’ll all go together
Where the wild mountain thyme
Grows around blooming heather

Would you go, laddie, go?
