Point The Way To Better Days

When I take the facts that it is cold, windy and just a few days before Christmas, I thought I would share my favorite song of my favorite Christmas Album. Temps in my part of South Carolina only got into the high 40’s today,… in the sun. (Less than 9 C)

Many of you might not appreciate a Christmas album by the band Jethro Tull, but it is actually very nice to listen to and is seasonally appropriate.  I’ll be sharing songs from this 2003 release culminating with Christmas Song and Another Christmas Song on Wednesday.

This is a song that reaches out and grabs your attention.  I can listen to it again and again and each time, hear something new.


Good morning Weathercock: How did you fare last night?
Did the cold wind bite you, did you face up to the fright
When the leaves spin from October
and whip around your tail?
Did you shake from the blast, did you shiver through the gale?

Give us direction; the best of goodwill —
Put us in touch with fair winds.
Sing to us softly, hum evening’s song —
Tell us what the blacksmith has done for you.

Do you simply reflect changes in the patterns of the sky,
Or is it true to say the weather heeds the twinkle in your eye?
Do you fight the rush of winter; do you hold snowflakes at bay?
Do you lift the dawn sun from the fields and help him on his way?

Good morning Weathercock: make this day bright.
Put us in touch with your fair winds.
Sing to us softly, hum evening’s song.
Point the way to better days we can share with you.
