                                                      Love                            Lorraine Brown

                                                      Love is a strong emotion
                                                      It makes the heart so gay;
                                                      It will not fail during life or death;
                                                      True love lives night and day.

                                                       Let us hope that every heart
                                                       Will think no evil or wrong;
                                                       for a heart that follows this golden rule
                                                       Will be filled with joyous song.
