THE MUSIC OF YOUR VOICE





A vase upon the mantelpiece,

A ship upon the sea,

A goat upon a mountain-top

Are much the same to me;

But when you mention melon jam,

Or picnics by the creek,

Or apple pies, or pantomimes,

I love to hear you speak.



The date of Magna Charta or

The doings of the Dutch,

Or capes, or towns, or verbs, or nouns

Do not excite me much;

But when you mention motor rides--

Down by the sea for choice

Or chasing games, or chocolates,

I love to hear your voice.
