MADISON COUNTY SINGING
The Madison County Singing
Choir meets at Bluestone the First
Sunday afternoon in June.
Life did not bring me silken gowns,
Nor jewels for my hair
Nor sight of gabled, foreign towns
In distant countries fair,
But I can glimpse beyond my pane, a
green and friendly hill,
And red geraniums aflame upon my
The brambled cares of every day,
The tiny humdrum things,
May bind my feet when they would
1 But still my heart has wings
While red geraniums are bloomed a
gainst my window glass,
| And low above my green-sweet hill
the gypsy wind- clouds pass.
And if my dreaming* ne'er come true
The brightes and the best,
But. leave, me. lone, my .journey
I’ll set my heart at rest,
I’ll set my heart at rest,
And thank. Thee,. God,, for. homo
sweet things a green and friendly h:ll
And red geraniums aflame upon, my
