After a long time of not bothering to read my version of the LibriVox Weekly Poetry, I did today. It’s a beautiful poem called “To… With all my sould, then, let us part” by Thomas Moore.

Here is mine:

With all my soul, then, let us part,
Since both are anxious to be free;
And I will send you home your heart,
If you will send mine back to me.

We’ve had some happy hours together,
But joy must often change its wing;
And spring would be but gloomy weather,
If we had nothing else but spring.

‘Tis not that I expect to find
A more devoted, fond and true one,
With rosier cheek or sweeter mind–
Enough for me that she’s a new one.

Thus let us leave the bower of love,
Where we have loitered long in bliss;
And you may down _that_ pathway rove,
While I shall take my way through _this_.

Tomorrow it will get cataloged and I’ll then link it here so that you can listen to all the other versions too. Listen! It’s fun! 😀
