Home for the Holidays
On Thursday evening, I'll see this scene though it will be colder and maybe some snow. It is my hometown.
It will be great to see familiar sights and be in a house so full of memories. All 30 of us will gather for Christmas in my parents' house.
In Indiana a song that we sing is, "Back Home Again In Indiana." It will be nice to be back!
The lyrics to the song:
I have always been a wand'rer
Over land and sea
Yet a moonbeam on the water
Casts a spell o'er me
A vision fair I see
Again I seem to be
Back home again in Indiana,
And it seems that I can see
The gleaming candlelight, still burning bright,
Through the sycamores for me.
The new-mown hay sends all its fragrance
Through the fields I used to roam.
When I dream about the moonlight on the Wabash,
How I long for my Indiana home.
Fancy paints on mem'ry's canvas
Scenes that we hold dear
We recall them in days after
Clearly they appear
And often times I see
A scene that's dear to me
