X-tra Terrestrial Flight: Love's Delight!

Fly me to the moon, and


let me play among the stars.

Let me see what spring is like

on Jupiter and Mars.

In other words, hold my hand.


In other words, darling, kiss me.

Fill my heart with song,


and let me sing forevermore.


You are all I long for,


all I worship and adore.

In other words, please be true.

In other words, I love you.

∞∞§∞∞

––with lots of X's and just a few o's
to all the X-hilarated, high-flying lovebirds out there...

& an X-tra nod to Bart Howard, composer X-traordinaire!

I LOVE this. I always say to my husband, "I love you to the moon and back!" We have a tradition on any special occasion where we give each other 2 cards. Usually not huge gift-givers, but we are card people. Anyway, one card we mark with an "F" on the envelope (for funny) and one we mark with a "S" for serious. My "S" card almost always includes this phrase somewhere....

Isn't love great!

Sue said...

I often give a funny card and a serious card, too, Caroline. It seems like I need both to really get the job done.

This just happens to be 'the song' of my newly married son McKay and his wife McKenna. I use to sing this song to McKay most every night when he was going to sleep as a little boy. I don't think he remembers me doing this but somewhere in his subconscious it was there because one night he started singing it to McKenna...and didn't know quite where it came from. But his mother knows...

That was fun, Sue! Perfect for my lunch hour! Maybe I'll email the old man and tell him I love him.

Darlene said...

One of Dick's favorite songs but I have to admit I never did sing it to him. He loves the way Frank Sinatra sings it.(In fact he loves anything Frank Sinatra sings.

The pictures are really good too, so altogether it was a good post and it appears that I am not the only one who thought so.

Jenny said...
