Tree Rhumba

Dancing trees, whatever next Smithy…………..No, …..there’s no need to say anything……….the WordPress High Council will probably hang you up by your keyboard until the tab key drops off………..

Because you told the blabbering trees………… and now he’s singing, oh, there’s no hope…………..

Yes you told them once before, and its no secret anymore……………. can’t stand it any more. I advise you all to leave right now, its not a pretty sight…………….

Why tell them all the old things, they’re buried under the snow, whispering grass, don’t tell the trees ’cause the trees don’t need to know……….

    • Ah, but the oaks in Wistman’s Wood are small and stunted while these are fully grown and part of the ancient royal forest of Cannock Chase. This area is part of Brocton Coppice…………just thought I would bore you… 🙂

    • Thanks Andy. Whispering grass, by the Inkspots was always being played when we visited my Grandparents house in Birmingham. They had a wind-up gramophone in a beautiful and ornate wooden case and it was the task of me and my younger sister to keep it wound up. I remember that it was a two handed job and quite hard work. I suppose that, as the Inkspots were popular in the 1930s and 40s, not many people would know about them now. The 78 had the song ‘Maybe’ on the other side. My memory is getting very poor, but I still know all the words to ‘Whispering Grass’.

    • Your eyes are magic, they seem to say…..come closer, come closer, and somehow I can’t stay away……..so, I’m going overboard with a capital O……

      Bet you don’t know that one…………not sure I do……can’t remember what the title was.

        • Huh, well I never, so it is………..I think that my Mother used to sing it when she was in the kitchen getting a meal ready……..she’s 97 and sometimes thinks I’m her brother who was dark and handsome, which just goes to show……..she needs to go to SpecSavers.
