“Rescue my Castle, before the hot day brightens to blue from its silvery grey” – Boot and Saddle by Robert Browning

Let them gaze while I most heartily pray;
They don’t understand how love’s like energy.
The sky brightens to blue from silvery grey.

Watch me swerve oh watch me sway;
Like fire that spins from within a spark.
Let them gaze while I most heartily pray.

Never felt the need to wander or stray;
Love is the path whose thoughts liberate.
The sky brightens to blue from silvery grey.

Give me grace so as to write and say;
The energy of mind – the essence of life.
Let them gaze while I most heartily pray.

Let not this love oh wither – decay
For in love’s limbs our vigor remains.
The sky brightens to blue from silvery grey.

I thank the lord above for him each day;
Our love’s a rhyme that feels complete.
Let them gaze while I most heartily pray;
The sky brightens to blue from silvery grey.
