Honeysuckle Vines

I woke up this morning with a sweet song by Dolly Parton in my head.  "...Honeysuckle vines cling to the fence along the way, its fragrance makes the summer wind so sweet..."  After 35 years I still remember all but one word in the lyrics to My Tennessee Mountain Home.  I am not a big country music fan but I grew up with Dolly and this song is still one of my favorites.  The beautiful picture she paints; the simple summer of years gone by.  I am not sure why I woke up this morning with that verse running through my mind, maybe because like many I long for a simpler time and I long for the sweet summer winds.  Beauty can be found anywhere if we look for it, even in the dark days of winter.  We may have to hum a little tune from a long time ago but it is there.  I hope that all of you that know this song leave for work, school, or where ever are humming this tune and you have a beautiful day.  If you don't know this song here it is:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Va6-P-w69zE
