“But the keeper of the hearth
is the keeper of the heart, after you.”
(Found today among my music, from a dream I had after my father died, June 28, 1991)
LISTEN to Song of Bernadette
So many hearts I find.
Broke like yours and mine.
Torn by what we’ve done and can’t undo…
I sang Song of Bernadette for my father’s funeral in 1990, with my 8 sisters on the chorus.
Today, October 3, with our Beth Ann’s birthday and my Meg’s 40th just done, I’m posting it here.
Quite a song from Jennifer Warrens and Leonard Cohen and Bill Elliott.
Here is my version, with Michael Smith guitar and Bob Weber’s cello.
Mixed on my Souvenir CD by Peter Swenson.
