lady in a fab dress copyCome oh come! let us away-
Lower, lower every day,
oh, what joy it is to race
Down to find the lowest place.

This the dearest law we know-

“it is happy to go low.”

Sweetest urge and sweetest will,

“Let us go down lower still.”

Hear the summons night and day

calling us to come away.

From the heights we leap and flow

to the valleys down below.

Always answering to the call.

To the lowest place of all.

Sweetest urge and sweetest pain.

To go low and rise again.

One of my favorite books!!! In fact, I have recently been thinking of reading it again. Talk about mental telepathy. Or maybe we are just mental... **kisskiss** Deb
