April 6 – Easter Monday and Opening Day at the Ball Park

Opening Day in Motown = Ernie Harwell and The Song of Solomon.

Can’t say how good it feels to listen to Ernie Harwell.  Here he is on a youtube clip and in print from The Song of Solomon.

For, lo, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of the singing of birds is come,
And the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.

Song of Solomon
Read on Tigers Opening Day for decades by Ernie Harwell

Ernie, lots of us miss you.  jstsj
