East of the Sun and West of the Moon

[Song Lyric]

East of the sun and west of the moon
Is where I must go,
For the love I won and lost so soon
Is there I know.

East of the sun and west of the moon,
Where there’s a will there’s a way.
I’ll know no rest from this lonely quest
Till I’m with my love someday.

Though now winds of pain blow
In fierce storms of sorrow,
Somehow there’ll be a rainbow
Shining for me tomorrow.

East of the sun and west of the moon—
How I long to see
That strange and wondrous land
Where my love waits for me!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
