Sorry ladies and gents but I am sending this on an old net book via a dongle from a very remote cottage.Hope it reaches you, Berrty

Darling I am growing old,

Silver threads among the gold

Shine upon my brow today;

Life is fading fast away;

But, my darling, you will be, will be,

Always young and fair to me,

Yes, my darling, you will be,

Always young and fair to me.

When your hair is silver white,

And your cheeks no longer bright,

With the roses of the May;

I will kiss your lips and say-

Oh! my darling, mine alone, alone,

You have never older grown,

Yes, my darling, mine alone,

You have never older grown.

Love can never more grow old

Locks may lose their brown and gold,

Cheeks may fade and hollow grow,

But the hearts that love will know

Never, never, winter's frost and chill:

Summer warmth is in them still-

Never winter's frost and chill,

Summer warmth is in them still.

Love is always young and fair,-

What to us is silver hair,

Faded cheeks or steps grown slow,

To the heart that beats below?

Since I kissed you, mine alone, alone,

You have never older grown-

Since I kissed you, mine alone,

You have never older grown.

  • Lovely, Berrty - as Why say, it wouldn't be the same without your song of the day! :)

    What are you doing in the middle of nowhere? Now, that reminds me of a song..... :-D




  • Now you have me worried Rose.

    I'm in the middle of nowhere

    What song do those lyrics come from?



  • There was a song, Berrty, can't remember it very well now, 60's/70's - but part of it went "I'm in the middle of nowhere, getting nowhere with you!!!!"


    Enjoy your country retreat!
