To Our Hearts' Content

The moment I saw you I knew That the love of my life was you. Through the pain and fire of earthly desire, We have proven to be true. Let us love to our hearts’ content, Now that we have heaven’s consent. May the sun and moon their blessings give, While in happiness we live. Let the birds of paradise sing And the golden church bells ring. May each turtledove and star above Herald an eternal spring. Like an ever-quenching pond, We have formed a lasting bond From life to life, as husband and wife— So tender, so dear, so fond. Let us love to our hearts’ content, Through the times that are turbulent. Together may we stand, still hand in hand, With devotion never spent. Let us love to our hearts’ content, Till we know what the poets meant. May the words ‘to cherish’ never perish And love be benevolent. ~ Harley White * * * * * * * * * Song Lyric, from: One Two Three a Trilogy – Three – “The Wild Swans” – a rendering in musical theater by Harley White – based on the Fairy Tale by Hans Christian Andersen (1805—1875) The song lyrics can be seen at the “Trilogy excerpts” link on my website at… ~ (click on Wild Swans)…
