My heart’s desire

by cricketjeff on December 26, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

The evening star shone clear tonight
As sunset set the woods on fire
The geese all gabbled in delight
And I recalled my heart’s desire
      The wind was chill around the lake
      But dreams can keep the spirits higher
      I knew that I made no mistake
    And I recalled my heart’s desire
The night fell soft on Mad Bess Wood
So ghostly shadows could conspire
The magpies gathered as they should
And I recalled my heart’s desire
      The evening star shone clear tonight
      And I recalled my heart’s desire
