You Were Never Lovelier

views 34

I was never able to recite a fable
That would make the party bright;
Sitting at the table I was never able
To become the host's delight;
But now you've given me my after dinner story,
I'll just describe you as you are in all your glory.

You were never lovelier,
You were never so fair,
Dreams were never lovelier,
Pardon me if I stare.

Down the sky the moonbeams fly to light your face;
I can only say they chose the proper place.
You were never lovelier,
And to coin a new phrase;
I was never luckier in my palmiest days.
Make a note, and you can quote me,
Honor bright,
You were never lovelier than you are tonight.
