about

Verses 1 and 3 comes from the poem ‘I will make you brooches and toys for your delight’ by Robert Louis Stevenson. Verse 2 and the melody were written by Hannah Rarity.

lyrics

I will make you brooches and toys to delight
Of bird-song at morning and star-shine at night.
I will make a palace fit for you and me
Of green days in forests and blue days at sea.

I will grow you a garden, plant it with seeds,
We'll bask in its colour and banish all weeds,
And when summer is over and winter is here,
By the warm fireside I'll be waiting, my dear.

And this shall be music when no one else is near,
The rare song I'm singing, the rare song to hear,
That only I remember and only you admire,
Of the broad road that stretches and the roadside fire.
