And while we spoke of many things, fools and kings, this he said to me: 'The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love, and be loved in return.'

Eden Ahbez, 1908-1995
American Musician, Songwriter and Poet

With an anguish only the greatest romantic can know, I have loved without love being returned, but have been left with with its lesser kin, to be liked in an abundance, has been returned while faun's and naked fairies danced at my feet and those whom love had touched made leaves and branches dance in nearby brush. How can one such as I, the fool, continue to raise my face to the blue moon sky and let my wishes fly for one last kiss with the one whose love and passion had not been returned? If even a lesser god would only smile down on me and move the heart of another and take this anguish away from me, I wailed-----A mischievous god must have heard my plea and set my heart at ease, for what you cannot see, will surely do you know harm and one fell swoop as one watches a fallen star, he blinded me.

I only can wish, with his wonderful voice---Does this mean my writers voice takes on the form of melody? I know someone else said that of me, but as I dance the Tennessee waltz all of this has become on clear to me. Maybe the rhythm and rhyme of a simple melody over time has simply overtaken me, like singing to a child to put them to sleep---hush little child, or maybe some other lullaby we've made up because the lyrics of a perfectly good song has gone out of our heads and we develop new poetry on the threads of old songs once sung by masters of their craft and we will follow them on this new fabric we are weaving as each day passes by. Thank you Moonheat and now a new thread has been woven.
