A Song For Your Fond Heart

Art by Pierre Auguste Cot, 1873

This my love is the only song
That I will gift your fond heart
Listen to the words for as long
As you may replay it from start
Let it inspect your warm feelings
And allow it an earnest opportunity
To drown you deeper in its sayings
And mind you not to dwell in reality
As from the earth you will sway
All over space, times, and shores
By melodies that carry you away
From all life’s ills and all its sores
Rejoice my beloved in what the words bring
And do give it the love to which you may sing
