SoCS: A Lullaby and a Golden Sunset on Ice


There be tales of old telling of young men, and young women too, going off to seek their fortunes, perhaps with a song, a fore tune, when they imagined gold and other riches. But after many miles and many years, if they are wise, they find more fortune in friendship, and honor, love, and finally peace. Gold is fine. Gold is good to have if used wisely, but it is not the most important thing, we learn in time. We gather a fortune in experience, knowledge and hopefully wisdom.

There’s a song my daughter taught me years ago when we travelled together. Now, I sing it to my granddaughter as a lullaby. Fortune and misfortune are mentioned in the second verse.

Back when we had a rare icing here on the Carolina coast, I saw the golden sunset reflected through ice on the fence. The old wire fence was transformed into a canvas. I feel fortunate to have been able to catch the light in these photos.

What is your favorite lullaby? Is it a song or a gentle rain?

Right now, I’m listening to the birds sing – my favorite wakeup call. They say spring is on the way!

  1. I love your pictures ❤️❤️

  2. Lovely photos, JoAnna. Ice and that golden light are a lovely combination. I have several lullaby’s my mom used to sing that I hold near and dear to my heart. The one you posted is familiar to me. It is quite beautiful.

  3. Thank you for sharing!!.. lovely photos showing nature’s art at its best!… I do like to listen to Secret Garden… don’t have a favorite lullaby, like them all…like waking up to the birds chorus… 🙂

    Have a wonderful Valentines day filled with love and happiness and until we meet again..
    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!

  4. Beautiful photos, JoAnna! My lullaby comes when I can open the windows in warmer weather and hear birds sing or the sounds of a soft rain. They are both sounds of comfort, which I hope to hear in the next month or so. Happy Saturday!

  5. I love the ice photos JoAnna. Those rare weather events can be really interesting.

  6. Beautiful song. I love your pics – thank you for sharing.

  7. Lovely photos. The lullaby is wonderfully soothing and serene.

  8. Awesome photos. A crackling fire is my favorite lullaby… if a wind or rain can be heard outside, all the better! 😉

  9. Pretty lullaby and pretty photos of sun shining through the ice coated fence.

  10. Beautiful photos and soothing lullaby, JoAnna. I like the sounds of gentle rain.

  11. Lovely photos, Joanna. And such a delightful lullaby.

  12. A delightful post. I couldn’t get Parsley, Sage, rosemary and thyme out of my head while listening to the lullaby
