Ellan Vannin (Isle of Man)
This poignant Manx folksong is the first title in my book, Tailless Tunes 2, published in 2014. Its peaceful melody and poignant lyrics evoke memories of a place of quiet beauty and calm -- an ideal place to enjoy life in all its stages. Sometimes folks find it necessary to leave their Island home in pursuit of education and career opportunities, but the sweet memories will always bring them home: "My own dear Ellan Vannin with its green hills by the sea."
