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~~
