BC: The End | Dance Me to The End of Love Dance with me in love dance with me in life when did enduring love begin? the day we became man and wife There is patience and understanding we try to be unselfish and kind though not a fairy-tale romance no grater love will we find Sharing dreams, passions, and desires building each other up when we fall we've learned to say i'm sorry and i love you through it all Our two hears beat as one cherishing what we have from above Dance with me forever Dance me to the end of love -Salman parker

1: Life brings simple pleasures to us every day. It is up to us to make them wonderful memories. CathyAllen

2: The Peace of Wild Things when despair for the world grows in me and i wake in the night at the least sound in dear of what my life and my children's lives may be, i go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. i come into the peace of wild things who do no tax their lives with forethought of grief. i come into the presence of still water. and i feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. for a time i rest in the grace of the world, and am free. -wendell berry

10: August 6, 1917 My dearest Mary, we are in the army now. i am sitting in side our little old tent listening to the gentle pattern of raindrops on the canvas. it began raining here this morning and it is still at it. no drill today so i will have to write a letter or two. we got into the city all O.K., marched up to the armory and had dinner. we have to march back and forth to eat. we did get some equipment in today but my name being well in the list i have not received my things so far. | The city is full of soldiers and sailors at the time, i guess. anyway there were a good many last night. the city the city is an easy place to get lost because of the irregularity of the streets. most all streets out our way cross each other at angles but in N.Y. they may take any direction. it was a bright clear day and we could see quite a distance . i have seen pictures of N.Y. from the Hudson and i can say that the real thing was just a picture laid before you. i can scarcely realize we are going. everything moves off without any trouble or delay that it might just as well be a trip up the river. well, i have been looking forward to his for quite a while and i guess, not that the time for going has come, it fits right into my scheme and ways of thinking that the going seems only a small part of it.well , i must close as to mail this right away so, goodbye little girl for a time at least, keep on writing. with truest love, Lloyd M. Staley
