Wind Chimes

from Sometimes Mother Really Does Know Best

Wind Chimes
by Christine Lavin  -- in English

This island is so beautiful
this must be paradise
the hotel is lovely
the staff is super nice
my room has a terrace
that overlooks the sea
the sun is bouncing on the water
lucky lucky me

I close my eyes for a minute
in the distance I can hear
the whispering of wind chimes
so far and yet so near
the sound perfumes the air
the ocean sighs below
a perfect moment here on earth
I don't want to let it go

wind chimes
floating on the breeze
wind chimes
wafting through the trees
wind chimes
the sound of angels cloud dancing
wind chimes
there is nothing as entrancing

I'm swimming in the ocean
I'm lying on the beach
I'm reading a good thick book
I'm eating a peach
I'm walking on the shoreline
I'm picking up pink shells
the whole time somewhere out there
is that the sound of tiny bells?


No, it's wind chimes
floating on the breeze
wind chimes
tickling the trees
wind chimes
the sound of angels ballet dancing
wind chimes
is anything as enchanting

BRIDGE
I eat my dinner on the terrace
watch that burning sun
extinguished by the ocean
evening has begun
I turn down the blankets
climb into my feather bed
but something's keeping me awake
is it deep thoughts in my head?  No, it's . . .

wind chimes ]
wafting on the breeze
wind chimes
annoying all the trees
wind chimes
the sound of angels polka dancing
wind chimes
a sound I once thought life enhancing

I close all the windows
but that tinkling sound comes through
I put a pillow over my head
I put in earplugs, too
I open up the minibar
drink tiny vodka, tiny gin
but nothing helps
I'm trapped here with the incessant din of

wind chimes
clanKing on the breeze
wind chimes
killing all the trees
wind chimes
a sound I once thought so enchanting
wind chimes
angels Irish step dancing

Too much of a good thing
is too much, simply that
at times like this
I'm glad I travel
with a baseball bat
Now I'm knocking down the wind chimes
within a mile of this place
Now I'm going back to bed
with a smile on my face

Crickets
crackling through the night
crickets
cricking with all their might
crickets
a dull yet monstrous roar
crickets
a sound that makes me long for

Wind chimes
floating on the breeze
wind chimes
filtered through the trees
wind chimes
the sound of angels belly dancing
wind chimes
there is nothing as entrancing as wind chimes . . .

Wind chimes  by Kelisiting Lavin

This island is very beautiful
this must be the heaven
hotel is the lovable
staff member is super good
My room has a big balcony
that to overlook the sea
the sun has me in the water
lucky lucky ball

I closed my eye one minute
to be away from me
to be able to hear the whisper
wind chimes still so to be so far near
The sound fills under the fragrance air
the sea to sigh consummation moment here
in I do not want lets it is on the Earth

The wind chimes float in the breeze
wind chimes flutter through the tree
wind chimes angel sound cover dance
wind chimes anything like not to enter

I swim I in the sea
to lie I in the beach
to read a good thick book
I to eat peach
I to walk me in the coastline
to pick up the pink shell
in somewhere there period
whether is the small bell's sound?

No, it is the wind chimes
The float itches the sound
wind chimes
which in the breeze
wind chimes the tree
wind chimes angel ballet dances
no matter what how about to confuse?

I ate me then to watch
that combustion in the big balcony
supper the sun to extinguish by the sea
evening start me to rotate
the blanket to rise into my feather bed
but something maintained I awakes
it whether was in mine head's profound idea? No, it is….

Wind chimes
fluttered at the breeze
wind chimes
causes the sound
wind chimes
sound which all tree vexed
wind chimes
angel short coat danced
I once to think the life enhancement!

I close all windows, but that dingdong sound passes
I invested in a mine head's
pillow in the ear plug, was also
Now I open the small strip signal
drink small volt Canada liquor
but the small gin anything does not help me
to surround here and the incessancy the voice….

Wind chimes
Bit the clang sound to kill all tree
wind chimes
sound in the breeze
wind chimes
I once to think that confused
wind chimes angel
Ireland to kick wears the dance!

Too many good deeds are too many
completely that!
Often looks like this me is happy
I travels the baseball bat
Now I strike down the wind chimes in a mile this place
Now I go back for the lodging in mine face smile . . .

Cricket bi racket making noise
whole evening cricket cricking
with possesses their might cricket dull-wittedness
and the strange roar cricket causes me long…Sound

Wind chimes
The float has not been assorted in the breeze
wind chimes torture tree
wind chimes angel danse du ventre's sound
wind chimes makes one be enthralled equally likely the
wind chimes!
