Monday’s Piece

Will you love me in December as you do in May,
Will you love me in that good old-fashioned way?
When my hair has turned all gray
Will you kiss me then and say
That you love me in December as you do in May?

(James J. Walker, 1881 – 1946)

Sunday’s Piece

There was sound of revelry by night,
And Rhodesia’s capital had gather’d then
Her beauty and her Chivalry, and bright
The lamps shone o’er fair women and brave men.
