A Love Song

By Vernon Scannell

  
I’ve always been in love with you I swear

‘Impossible,’ they say; yet it is true:

I speak with certainty, for I was there.

When I reeled groggy as the punchbowl air

Was spiced with melody I longed for you;

I’ve always been in love with you I swear.

My infant whispers to the beat-up bear

Were meant for you, the tears and kisses too;

I speak with certainty, for I was there.

Let experts, calendars and maps declare

I’m nuts or have at least one wobbly screw;

I’ve always been in love with you I swear.

New kinds of beauty and the wish to share

These riches were rehearsals, as I knew;

I speak with certainty, for I was there.

These shadow-loves were work-outs to prepare

For this, the main event, that they led to;

I’ve always been in love with you I swear;

I speak with certainty, for I was there.

Song of Solomon 8:6-7King James Version (KJV)

 

Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.
Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

9 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! 11 Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? 12 And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

  

The Lost Art of Letter Writing………

Nathaniel Hawthorne to Sophia Peabody

How did I love before I knew you — before I possessed your affection! I reckon upon your love as something that is to endure when everything that can perish has perished — though my trust is sometimes mingled with fear, because I feel myself unworthy of your love. But if I am worthy of it you will always love me; and if there be anything good and pure in me, it will be proved by my always loving  you

Diamond Stories ……..

De Beers created the 4Cs in 1934 as a way of categorizing and evaluating diamonds. GIA (Gemological Institute of America) later adopted the system for use in their laboratory, which was established in the 1950’s.

          

 

Diamond Stories

The tradition of giving a diamond ring as a token of a promise dates back to the 15th Century, when Archduke Maximilian of Austria gave Mary of Burgundy a diamond ring to celebrate their engagement.

  

Matthew 19:4-6

 He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said,’Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
