We have a song!

10th June 2017

Pennard House has its own song! This song was written during the Chris Difford Songwriting Retreat 2016 at Pennard House.

A wonderful week of creative songwriting sponsored by the Buddy Holly Foundation, that sees some incredible artists and songwriters get together to write new music.

This song was written and recorded by Kimmie Rhodes and Robert Vincent during their week at Pennard.

 

The Pennard House Song

On the hillside in a magic, ancient land,
Loyal, noble manor stately stands.
Made of bricks and mortar but its fathers, mothers, sons and daughters,
People in the house make a home.

[Chorus] The roses in the garden climb the wall,
Through the trees they watch the seasons rise and fall.
Hands wind clocks, the time keeps spinning round,
within the walls of the Pennard House.

Pillars hold the roof beneath the sky,
Sun shines through the windows open wide
Footsteps on the gravel lead to weddings in the chapel,
May the circle be unbroken by the light.

The roses in the garden climb the wall,
Through the trees they watch the seasons rise and fall.
Hands wind clocks, the time keeps spinning round,
within the walls of the Pennard House.

Tables where the welcome’s always warm,
Knows the tales of those who’ve come and gone before.
People in the picture frames watch the children run and play
and dream of what their future has in store.

The roses in the garden climb the wall,
Through the trees they watch the seasons rise and fall.
Hands wind clocks, the time keeps spinning round,
within the walls of the Pennard House.

 

The songwriting retreat 2017 takes place in June this year.
