Save a day


To save a day
lets run far away
across the seven seas.
Like adam and eve
we'll hide amongst the trees.

Just you and me
oh lets run away
and sit by the boats
at the edge of the world.
I'll earn our keep
by playing drums
as you dance around.

To save a day
lets run away
we'll cross lands
that cars dare not go
and climb like monkeys
to the tops of trees.

You and me what wonder we'll see
we'll fight the bad and win the day
then carry on home for tea.

Oh, would it not be nice to get away
if just for this one day.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I Speak Not, I Trace...
by George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
