Sunrise, sunset....

We had some lovely sunrises and sunsets this week before it started to rain and snow again, and as we have lovely views to the *Drachenfels* and the Rhine from here, I just have to open the window to get such lovely pictures. Made me think of that lovely, albeit melancholy song from *Anatevka* (Fiddler on the Roof):

(Tevye)
Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?

(Golde)
I don't remember growing older
When did they?

(Tevye)
When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he grow to be so tall?

(Golde)
Wasn't it yesterday
When they were small?

(Men)
Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

(Women)
Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears

(Tevye)
What words of wisdom can I give them?
How can I help to ease their way?

(Golde)
Now they must learn from one another
Day by day

(Perchik)
They look so natural together

(Hodel)
Just like two newlyweds should be

(Perchik & Hodel)
Is there a canopy in store for me?

(All)
Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful photographs. I love the words to that song and now practically know them off by heart as Alexandra was in a local production of Fiddler two weeks ago and have watched the film goodness knows how many times since last September LOL!!!!

    Hope this finds you improving in BP terms.
