I hear the sound of silver lights –

      Not the gong of gold,  nor the clash of copper

I hear the sound of silver lights –

        Not the roar of red,  nor the boom of blue

I hear the sound of silver lights –

          Not the ping of pink, nor the whiff of white

Just the silver lights of fairies, fluttering in the night.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you.

Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Here’s a fun article about it.
    Some are too scientific for me, but I enjoyed this one.

      Interesting and I understood some as relates to babies. And I confess to trying to say the sound of “da” with my tongue to the side of my mouth. You see my level of comprehension. Thanks for letting me in on a new word (synesthesia) which my spell check doesn’t like. I leave it to you, O Mistress of Trivia and Other Accomplishments.
