  • I am them. They are us. We is a rare and precious commodity...

    Oh the world is surpassing strange
    Wonderful in irony
    Magical in connections

    (from Happy Birthday Mr Ben, by Benjamin Weinberg)

    Let the love be lilting
    let it sing from the tallest tree
    your hand held in my hand
    a traipsing till we’re free

    Oh let the love be merry
    merry so that all may see
    my hand held in your hand
    a wonderful where for me

    Please let the love be a circle
    round a world with seven seas
    our hands held by their hands
    a very strong link indeed

    Hark how the love is lilting
    let it lilt from the tallest tree
    their hands held by our hands
    a better round bound to be

    Happy happy Mr. B
