Sing me a song, my Love


Sing me a song, my Love,
In your sweet voice a soothing tune;
Like the rain that comes on a parched land,
That satisfies the yearnings of the tiller
And causes the earth to bring forth life,
Sing me a song!

Sing to me of the seasons of life
Of the cycles of laughter and pain
And the secret beauty that lies in them.
Sing for me, to accompany my daily toils,
In my struggles to being a better human;
Sing, that home and heaven might seem nearer.

Sing me the songs of our forefathers-
The melodies that sang of our generation,
Giving comfort to their weary spirits.
Remind me of those songs of old
Let their notes flow out of me,
Let their dreams come true.

Sing me a song, my Love,
A song to teach our children,
A harmony they will carry in their hearts;
A hope to hold on to,
And a dream to live out each day-
Sing me a song!

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
