“A Sense of Wonder” by Van Morrison #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #InLovewU #WhatAWonderful #Day

Introduction:

“Dreams, memories, the sacred--they are all alike in that they are beyond our grasp. Once we are even marginally separated from what we can touch, the object is sanctified; it acquires the beauty of the unattainable, the quality of the miraculous. Everything, really, has this quality of sacredness, but we can desecrate it at a touch. How strange man is! His touch defiles and yet he contains the source of miracles.” 

Yukio Mishima

The song being featured is titled “A Sense of Wonder(2), is Celtic soul written and recorded by Van Morrison. 

It is blues in it's highest form and the first track on the second side of his fifteenth album titled "A Sense of Wonder" released in 1985. Van Morrison is a brilliant musician. He knows how to speak to the music and one of my favorite sounds.

His genre is Blues, R&B, Celtic, folk rock, soft rock. The video was published on Aug 29, 2015, Van Morrison.

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"A Sense Of Wonder"(3)


I walked in my greatcoat
Down through the days of the leaves.
No before after, yes after before
We were shining our light into the days of blooming wonder
In the eternal presence, in the presence of the flame.

Didn't I come to bring you a sense of wonder
Didn't I come to lift your fiery vision bright
Didn't I come to bring you a sense of wonder in the flame.

On and on and on and on we kept singing our song
Over Newtonards and Comber, Gransha and the
Ballystockart Road.
With Boffyflow and Spike
I said I could describe the leaves for Samuel and Felicity
Rich, red browney, half burnt orange and green.

Didn't I come to bring you a sense of wonder
Didn't I come to lift your fiery vision bright
Didn't I come to bring you a sense of wonder in the flame.

It's easy to describe the leaves in the Autumn
And it's oh so easy in the Spring
But down through January and February it's a very different thing.

On and on and on, through the winter of our discontent.
When the wind blows up the collar and the ears are frostbitten too
I said I could describe the leaves for Samuel and what it means to you and me
You may call my love Sophia, but I call my love Philosophy.

Didn't I come to bring you a sense of wonder
Didn't I come to lift your fiery vision
Didn't I come to bring you a sense of wonder in the flame.

Wee Alfie at the
Castle Picture House on the Castlereagh Road.

Whistling on the corner next door where
he kept Johnny Mack Brown's horse.
O Solo Mio by McGimsey
and the man who played the saw
outside the city hall.
Pastie suppers down at Davey's chipper
Gravy rings, barmbracks
Wagon wheels, snowballs.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week-end and thank you as always for checking out my posts. I pray you’re having a blessed and safe day or evening regardless of where you might be in this world.
