April Love Song





 


I Love You,
Not only for what you are,
But for what I am
When I am with you.
"Love"
Roy Croft











"The End Of The Quest"
 Sir Frank Dicksee
(1921)

The fountains mingle
with the river,
And the rivers,
with the ocean;
The winds of heaven
mix forever,
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world
is single;
All things by a 
law divine
In one another's
being mingle;
Why not I with thine?

See! the mountains
kiss the high heaven,
And the waves
clasp one another;
No sister flower
would be forgiven
If it disdained
its brother;
And the sunlight
clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams
kiss the sea:
What are all
these kisses worth,
If thou kiss not me?
"Love's Philosophy"
Percy Bysshe Shelley





Paolo and Francesca da Rimini,
Dante Gabriel Rossetti 
(1867) 


To know for an hour
you were mine completely-
Mine in body and soul,
my own-
I would bear
unending tortures
sweetly,
With not a murmur
and not a moan.
A lighter sin
or a lesser error
Might change through hope
or fear divine;
But there is no fear,
and hell has no terror,
To change or alter
a love like mine.
"Ad Finem"
Ella Wheeler Wilcox







Lady In Red
Vladimir Volegov

Today, dear heart,
but just today,
The sunshine over all,
The roses
crimsoning the air
Along the garden wall!
Then let the dream
and the dreamer die
Whate'er shall be, shall be-
Today will still
be thine and mine
To all eternity.
 "Her Answer"
John Bennett





A clip from
the classic western series,
"Cheyenne"
(1955-63)
Clint Walker sings
"Love's Old Sweet Song"


"Just a song at twilight
when the lights are low,
And the flickering shadows
softly come and go;
Though the heart be weary,
sad the day and long,
Still to us at twilight
Comes Love's old song,
Comes Love's old 
sweet song."
 " Love's Old Sweet Song"
J.L. Molloy 






Lighthouse At Night
Artist Unknown

Out where the moonlight
silvers the bay,
Out where the stars
all their wonders display,
Come let us sail,
oh, come let us go
Over the deep
where the summer 
winds blow.

Dear to our hearts
though mountains may be,
Here is a night
for the wave and the sea;
Never before was
ocean so fair,
Moonlight and starlight
are calling us there,
Moonlight and starlight
are calling us there."
 "Moonlight and Starlight"
Stephen C. Foster
