Celebrate Each Day with a Song ~ Flora’s Secret

Enya is a remarkable artist. The overwhelming theme behind each of her songs are the elements of earth, air, fire and water. Her haunting, at times ethereal voice, conveys the feelings of joy, sadness, hope and solace found in every heart. The songwriting team of Enya, Nicky and Roma Ryan create a wash of color and sound with each song.

All at once, the melodies and prose connect us to spirit. Our senses, especially the elusive sixth sense, are alerted, touched by her voice and her intention. The tactile world of root and rock. The fragrance of rivers and moss. The sight of poppies in bloom and wheat swaying under the summers breeze are in the musical tones and notes. The memory of Pomona, Selene and Nike are called forth to join in Enya’s songs.

The fey, celebrated and prolific artist from Donegal Ireland gives a song to the flow of sunlight upon flowers and moonlight upon lovers. “Flora’s Secret”, is a charming love song to the earth and all that makes life glorious. The waltz time measure lifts the spirits and remind us how lovely a moment can be.

“Flora’s Secret” is on the CD: A Day withour Rain, published by Warner Music in 2000.

“Flora’s Secret” by Enya

Lovers in the long grass
Look above them
Only they can see
Where the clouds are going
Only to discover
Dust and sunlight
Ever make the sky so blue

Afternoon is hazy
River flowing
All around the sounds
Moving closer to them
Telling them the story
Told by Flora
Dreams they never knew

Silver willows
Tears from Persia
Those who come
From a far-off island
Winter Chanterelle lies
Under cover
Glory-of-the-sun in blue

Some they know as passion
Some as freedom
Some they know as love
And the way it leaves them
Summer snowflake
For a season
When the sky above is blue
When the sky above is blue

Lying in the long grass
Close beside her
Giving her the name
Of the one the moon loves
This will be the day she
Will remember
When she knew his heart was
Loving in the long grass
Close beside her
Whispering of love
And the way it leaves them
Lying in the long grass
In the sunlight
They believe it’s true love
And from all around them
Flora’s secret
Telling them of love
And the way it breathes, and
Looking up from eyes of
Amaranthine …
They can see the sky is blue
Knowing that their love is true
Dreams they never knew
And the sky above is blue
