“Goodnight, Irene” is The Royal Song of the Day for Sunday, August 28th. You can find the lyrics to this song at Rise Up Singing on page 132. The Duke and Duchess of Peace are dedicating this song to the hurricane (and tropical storm) named Irene, and to the folks she affected. A lot of other folks on social media have sung this song in the past few days, as well.
Duke Augustus writes: “Shelter from the Storm” by Bob Dylan is the Royal Peace Song of the Day for Saturday, August 27, 2011. Shelter and safety are on everyone’s mind as Hurricane Irene makes landfall on the East Coast. Yesterday, a Long Island, New York restaurateur told Duke Augustus that he received a telephone call from a friend in the Louisiana. The Louisianian had lived through Hurricane Katrina, and was concerned that his Long Island friend was prepared. The restaurateur assured his friend that his NY establishment was far in-land, and was windowless, but he appreciated the concern. For those in the path of Hurricane Irene, there is emergency information at the end of this post.
