Wordsworth:

'So through the darkness and the cold we flew,
And not a voice was idle: with din,
Meanwhile the precipices rang aloud;
The leafless trees and every crang
Tinkled like iron; while the distant hills
Into the tumult sent an alien sound
Of Melancholy not unnoticed, while the stars
Eastward were sparkling clear and in the west
The orange sky of the evening died away...'


Wordsworth is 1 of my fav writers

I will always love you

When I'm with you, eternity is a step away,
my love continues to grow, with each passing day.
This treasure of love, I cherish within my soul,
how much I love you, you'll never really know.
You bring a joy to my heart, I've never felt before,
with each touch of your heart, I love you more and more.
Whenever we say goodbye, whenever we part,
know I hold you dearly, deep inside my heart.
So these seven words, I pray you hold true,
"Forever and Always, I will Love You."

"The moment we want to believe something, we suddenly see all the arguments for it, and become blind to the arguments against it."
"Reading made Don Quixote a gentleman, but believing what he read made him mad. "
"You'll never have a quiet world till you knock the patriotism out of the human race. "
George Bernard Shaw

In Spirit

Though you don't live next door,
though you're five states away,
You're still here in my thoughts
every week, every day.

When events of the day
cause this soul to despair,
just the sound of your voice
makes them easy to bear.

When I don't have the luxury
of feeling your soft touch
or taking in your scent,
which I appreciate so much,

I need only look back
at the times we have had
to wonder if I've
any right to be sad.

You're truly a blessing.
I want you to know
that I care for you deeply,
wherever I go.

If I could catch a rainbow
I would do it just for you,
And share with you its beauty
On the days you're feeling blue

If I could build a mountain
You could call your very own,
A place to find serenity,
A place to be alone

If I could take your troubles
I would toss them in the sea,
But all these things I'm finding
Are impossible for me

I cannot build a mountain,
Or catch a rainbow fair,
But let me be what I know best,
A friend who's always there

- Sydney Thacker -

Sounds and sweet airs, that delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about thine ears and sometimes voices
That, if I then had walked after a long sleep,
Will make me sleep again.

When you feel cold and warm at the same time,
when you read over the same line for the tenth time,
when your heart and thoughts somehow appear to rhyme,
and when a simple name conquers your whole mind,
then you are in deep trouble my friend... you are in what they call, "love".

The Dolphins

This old world may never change
The way it's been
And all the ways of war
Can't change it back again

I've been searchin'
For the dolphins in the sea
And sometimes I wonder
Do you ever think of me

I'm not the one to tell this world
How to get along
I only know the peace will come
When all hate is gone

She is not fair to outward view
As many maidens be;
Her loveliness I never knew
Until she smiled on me.
Oh! then I saw her eye was bright,
A well of love, a spring of light.

Hartley Coleridge

He that would thrive,
Must rise at five,
He that hath thriven,
May lie till seven.

John Clarke

I cannot sing the old songs
That I sang long years ago
For heart & voice would fail me
And foolish tears would flow

Claribel

Imagine
John Lennon

Imagine there’s no heaven.
It’s easy if you try.
No hell below us,
Above us only sky.
Imagine all the people
Living for today.

Imagine there’s no countries.
It isn’t hard to do.
Nothing to kill or die for,
And no religion, too.
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace.

Imagine no possessions.
I wonder if you can.
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man.
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world.

You may say I’m a dreamer.
But I’m not the only one.
I hope someday you’ll join us,
And the world will be as one.

I had this song with me. It has been sung by some of the other singers too.
Nice lyrics by John Lennon (Beatles)

I don't imagine this, I believe in it

"Imagine" is a John Lennon solo album, not a Beatles album though I think at that time the Beatles were still around.
BTW, is it OK with copyright etc. to u/l English songs?

I do know that it is a solo album. Thanks for the song. I don't know where it is in the maze of english & hindi songs in 3 laptops & a desktop. Thanks again Shivani

This is a lovely song sung by Amy Grant


I Will Remember You (Lyrics)


I will be walking one day
Down a street far away
And see a face in the crowd and smile

Knowing how you made me laugh
Hearing sweet echoes of you from the past
I will remember you.

Look into my eyes while you're near
Tell me what's happening here
See that I don't want to say, 'good-bye'

Our love is frozen in time
I'll be your champion and you will be mine
I will remember you.

Later on,
When the nights not so tender
Given time,
Though it's hard to remember
I will be holding
I'll still be holding to you
I will remember you.

So many years come and gone
And yet the memory is strong
One word we never could learn
Good-bye

True love is frozen in time
I'll be your champion and you will be mine
I will remember you
So please remember
I will remember you
I will remember you
I will remember you
I will remember you

mmmm .. while we are at topic of lovely songs.. I cannot help but think of these two from Alan PArson Project. Really amazing songs.

OLD AND WISE
As far as my eyes can see
There are shadows approaching me
And to those I left behind
I wanted you to know
You've always shared my deepest thoughts
You follow where I go

And oh when I'm old and wise
Bitter words mean little to me
Autumn winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they ask me if I knew you
I'd smile and say you were a friend of mine
And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes
Oh when I'm old and wise

As far as my eyes can see
There are shadows surrounding me
And to those I leave behind
I want you all to know
You've always shared my darkest hours
I'll miss you when I go

And oh when I'm old and wise
Heavy words that tossed and blew me
Like autumn winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they ask you if you knew me
Remember that you were a friend of mine
As the final curtain falls before my eyes
Oh when I'm old and wise

As far as my eyes can see



And this one is just amazing with lovely music

Eye In The Sky
(Lead vocal - Eric Woolfson)

Don't think sorry's easily said
Don't try turning tables instead
You've taken lots of Chances before
But I'm not gonna give anymore
Don't ask me
That's how it goes
Cause part of me knows what you're thinkin'

Don't say words you're gonna regret
Don't let the fire rush to your head
I've heard the accusation before
And I ain't gonna take any more
Believe me
The sun in your Eyes
Made some of the lies worth believing

Chorus:
I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see any more
To know that
I can read your mind, I can read your mind

Don't leave false illusions behind
Don't Cry cause I ain't chnaging my mind
So find another fool like before
Cause I ain't gonna live anymore believing
Some of the lies while all of the Signs are deceiving
