Songs That Every Child Should Know 195
The Voice Of One We Love
Leeks and onions were not only placed in the sacred chests of Egypt, but they were honored elsewhere as vegetables of utility. This song originally celebrated the leek, and is sung at most Welsh festivals.
Although, when the years are flown,
A change of scene or lot Each other cherished tone
From our memory may blot, A sound, a sound there is that yet,
Whatever change we prove, We never, never can forget,
'T is the voice of one we love.
