Whispers of The North has beautiful lyrics.
I often try my hand at poetry and I journal a lot. I can get bogged down for hours trying to get one thought put down in a great way...I wonder how he does it...sigh..
It's really hard for me to comprehend that kind of talent.

Anyway, I can't wait to hear that song. I already know that I will love it.
Thanks JJ

That sounds great gwen. If we can manage it, I would love to meet you.
I wonder if we are the only ones going to Merrillville????????

Whispers of the north
Soon I will return again
To those endless afternoons
In sunshine and in rain
Whispers of my love
Days and weeks on end
I will share my thoughts of her
In prayers that I will send

I especially like this.

Yes, he does.
I was going to go search for this song and give it a listen but I decided to wait for awhile.
I am still picking apart Don Quixote...lol. I am also still waiting for my stuff from Amazon.com. but when it arrives it should keep me busy for a long time.

Anyway, I have a date with Whispers of the North....I think I might even wait till I can go out and sit under the stars to listen to this one.
As crazy as the weather has been that could be next week.

The night skies are soooo much nicer in the winter months (when it's not snowing of course) and I make sure I look up every evening. And I'm usually having to stand and not for long because it's too cold! So I do hope you have that chance to sit under the stars to listen to Whispers!

Hi Podunklander,
I couldn't agree more. The night sky in the winter is breathtaking if you can stand the cold.
I have a telescope that I use once in awhile...usually in the summer months, it takes a while to set it up and actually find what I am looking for...lol.

I think Whispers Of The North will be a great song to star gaze with. I am looking forward to it.

Since it was relatively pleasant out last night, I spent a little more time star gazing. I don't have Whispers...but was thinking of it .

Well when the opportunity arises...enjoy your evening of star gazing and Whispers!

Thank You for putiing that up JJ....that truly is a beautiful song.

Everytime I discover a new song that I love it makes me so happy that I found Gordon's music.
He pulls feelings right out of your heart and sings them back to you...

Whispers of the north
Soon I will go forth
To that wild and barren land
Where nature takes its course
Whispers of the wind
Soon I will be there again
Bound with a wild and restless drive
That pulls me from within

And we can ride away
We can glide all day
And we can fly away

Whispers of the north
Soon I will return again
To those endless afternoons
In sunshine and in rain
Whispers of my love
Days and weeks on end
I will share my thoughts of her
In prayers that I will send

And we can ride away
We can glide all day
And we can fly away

Whispers of the north
The river and the shore
In the land that tested Eskimos
Ten thousand years before
Whispers of my heart
In the tracks of animals
I will leave my footprints there
To lie beneath the snow

And we can ride away
We can glide all day
And we can fly away

Whispers of the wind
I will feel it sting
I will see it rise and fall
I will hear it sing
The sound is like a song to me
It takes away the pain
The river is the melody
And sky is the refrain

And we can ride away
We can glide all day
And we can fly away

And we can ride away
We can glide all day
And we can fly away

Whispers of the north
Soon I will go forth
Whispers of the north
Soon I will go forth
