10/20/17 - NNHS Newsletter - Whispering Grass

“That we may mark with wonder and chaste dread
At hour of noon, when, with our limbs outspread
Lazily in the whispering grass, we lie
To gaze out fully upon the windy sky-
Far, far away, and kindly, friend with friend
To talk the old, old talk that has no end,
Roaming-without a name-without a chart
The unknown garden of another's heart.”

- C. S. Lewis
(29 Nov 1898 – 22 Nov 1963)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   It's time again for a Golden Oldie, this one from 1940.

Whispering Grass

Written by Fred Fisher (30 Sept 1875 - 14 Jan 1942) and his daughter Doris Fisher (1915 –2003)

Recorded by
The Ink Spots, 1940


Why do you whisper, green grass
Why tell the trees what ain't so?
Whispering grass
The trees don't have to know
Why tell them all your secrets
Who kissed there long ago?
Whispering grass
The trees don't need to know
Now don't you tell it to the breeze
'Cause she will tell it to the trees
And everyone will know
Because you told them once before
Yes, you told them once before
It's no secret anymore
Why tell them all the old things
They're buried under the snow
Whispering grass don't tell the trees
'Cause the trees don't need to know
Why tell them all your secrets
Who kissed there long ago?
Whispering grass
The trees don't need to know
Now don't you tell it to the breeze
'Cause she will run and tell it to the trees
And everyone will know
'Cause you told them once before
Yes, you told them once before
That's no, no secret anymore
Why tell them all the old things
They're buried under the snow
Whispering grass don't tell the trees
'Cause the trees don't need to know
