Get Rid Of The Advertisements

The Northern Lights
She n'er laughed at much i've heard--

While her smile filled the air~

Looking at the butterfly and bird--

For the bee a heartfelt prayer...

She n'er romanced much in her life--

I've been told~~

The Amherst Moon divulged the news--

Her Soul wrapped 'round the yellow-gold--

The Galaxy 'twas her Muse~~

The Norhtern Lights they beckoned her...

Away from sod and tree~~

And took her heart in tender grasp--

And filled it with promise O' Eternity~~
