We’re off again to Sanctuary
To save us from the Melancholy
A place to help us to forget,
Where we do not suffer regret.
Where the sun shines brightly through,
Trees and flowers grow anew.
To replenish mind and body once more,
There’s friends around and surprises in store.
Spring is in the air, sights to behold.
Welcome the new, but cherish the old.
Lambs and calf and fawn surround,
Open your ears and relish the sound.
A bright carpet of yellow daffodils,
Will always be one of the thrills.
What will have grown, what will have died?
What small animals used the house to hide?
There through the winter cosy and warm.
Inviting and safe to them, not broken and worn.
So I will clean up the house, the caravans too.
Will do some repairs, will make some stew.
Put on the coffee and light your cigar,
Remembering that we’ve come so far.
When nighttime comes you’ll get your desire,
A glass of Brandy by the roaring fire.
Batten down hatches to calm the storm,
Silently, resting peaceful and calm.
Our place where we feel truly free.
We’re home again to our Sanctuary.
