Thread Name: Best verses about love
Subject: RE: Best verses about love
"But the heart beats on as warmly now,
As when the summer days were neigh,
The sun can never dip so low
A down affections cloudless sky.


" How happy we were for a day,
Like lovebirds we dwelt 'neath the bower,
And the brightness of Cora's sweet smile,
Seemed to rival the blush of the flowers,
But, happiness fades like the rose,
Before the first full of the moon,
The Grim Reaper knocked at my door,
And took Cora my pretty quadroon."

Farewell to Kentucky's green hills
Farewell to Kentucky's green braes
Farewell to the green grassy fields
Where Cora and I often strayed
To this old world I'll soon say 'Farewell'
My heart will find rest in the tomb
But my spirit will fly to the spot
And watch over my pretty quadroon.
