Long ago and far away,
I knew you were, 
But where?
Then one day you were there--
My long-lost friend returned.
Or so it seemed--though now
I think I dreamed it all.
I looked for you and you were gone,
But where?

Old October

All things on earth point home in old October; sailors to sea, travellers to walls and fences, hunters to field and hollow and the long voice of hounds, the lover to the love he has forsaken.
~Thomas Wolfe

"The stars seemed near enough to touch and never before have I seen so many. I always believed the lure of flying is the lure of beauty, but I was sure of it that night."
--Amelia Earhart

The Lovely Stars

Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven,
Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.

--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, from "Evangeline"

Only More Love

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

--Mother Teresa

The Wind

I have not seen the wind,
But this I know:
That tonight, once more, I hear it,
Even as I heard your voice
So very long ago.
--Kindred Spirit

Old letters

Tonight I read them once again,
old letters from a friend from long ago.
How far away those days! And though
it seemed they'd never end, they have.
The cold and dreary winter settles in. 
--Kindred Spirit

A sky as pure as water bathed the stars and brought them out.

--Antoine de Saint-Exupery
