Goodbye Skylark, Here's Johnny

Skylark, have you anything to say to me?
Won't you tell me where my love can be?
Is there a meadow in the mist
where someone's waiting to be kissed?

Skylark, have you seen a valley green with spring
where my heart can go a journeying
over the shadows and the rain
to a blossom covered lane?

And in your lonely flight
haven't you heard the music in the night,
wonderful music,
faint as a will o' the wisp, crazy as a loon,
sad as a gypsy serenading the moon.

Oh, skylark, I don't know if you can find these things
but my heart is riding on your wings.
So if you see them anywhere
won't you lead me there?

-- Johnny Mercer

The Skylark Restaurant's new name, Johnny Cakes reminds me of the Johnny Cakes episode of the Sopranos, ( where former Brooklyn firefighter Johnny Costelloe plays Vito's love interest Jim - aka Johnny Cakes )

Oak Hill in Winter

Great Hudson River view with Tappan Zee Bridge on right.

Snowy days are best for walking around Oak Hill.

Well planned & interesting. Many artistic headstones.
