If I were put in a spot and made to sing a song, I will likely end up singing “Edelweiss” from The Sound of Music. It’s easy to remember – both the melody and the words. Elegant, wholesome music that the entire family can sing along together–stuff happy childhoods are made of. Fancy a beautiful song inspired by a plant–with words simple enough that even a 5-year-old can recite by heart, but a symbolism so profound, it ends on a patriotic note.
This song is indelibly etched in my heart – and I am sure it’s not hard to see why.
