Poetry Friday: Egyptian Serenade by George William Curtis

July 16th, 2010 (07:06 am)
thirsty

Current Mood: thirsty
Current Song: Ferris Bueller's Day Off score music

Sing again the song you sung
When we were together young-
When there were but you and I
Underneath the summer sky.

Sing the song, and o'er and o'er
Though I know that nevermore
Will it seem the song you sung
When we were together young.

- Egyptian Serenade by George William Curtis

Nice rhythms :-)

Now I'm wondering why it is called Egyptian Serenade...

I don't know the story behind the title, but I do love Ancient Egypt.
