Ages ago [personal profile] marginaliana asked if people had favourite folk songs, and I meant to respond, but didn't. So now I am.

No-one else's version of a folk song you first hear sung by your mother can ever be perfect*, but this one is as close as any could get. The photos of Roundhay Park do it no harm in my eyes.

*Especially when you're the sort of person whose head shrieks "IVY tree, not rowan!" at every chorus.
