From the recording TIME WAS


CABIN IN THE WOOD (words by Langston Hughes, used by permission)

There’s hanging moss / And holly / And tall straight pine / About this little cabin / In the wood.

Inside a crackling fire, / Warm red wine, / And youth and life and laughter / that is good.

Outside / The world is gloomy / The winds of winter cold, / As down the road / A wandering poet / Must roam. / But here there’s peace / and laughter / And love’s old story told— / Where two people / Make a home.

(Outside / The world is gloomy / Winds of winter cold / But here there’s peace / And love’s old story told.)
