Around the World & Back Again

On this day 36 years ago the love of my life was born...Happy birthday baby-I love you with all of my heart and soul...

by Max Ehrmann

I weary of those noisy nights, Of shallow jest and coarse "good cheer" Of jazzy sounds and brilliant lights Come, Love, let us away from here.

Let us lay down this heavy load; And, side by side, far away from town, Drive on some lonely country road; And, wondering, watch the sun go down.

What time is left to us, come, Love. The woods, the fields shall make us whole; The nightly pageantry above Our little world, keeps sweet our soul.

No peace this city's madness yields - A tawdry world in cheap veneer. Out there the lovely woods and fields Come, Love, away from here.
