Ella Wheeler Wilcox - Sing To Me

Sing to me! Something of sunlight and bloom, 
I am so compassed with sorrow and gloom, 
I am so sick with the world’s noisse and strife, -
Sing of the beauty and brightness of life –
Sing to me, sing to me! 

Sing to me! Something that’s jubilant, glad! 
I am so weary, my soul so sad.
All my earth riches are covered with rust, 
All my bright dreams are but ashes and dust.
Sing to me, sing to me! 

Sing og the blossoms that open in spring, 
How the sweet flowers blow, and the long lichens cling, 
Say, though the winter is round about me, 
There are bright summers and springs yet to be.
Sing to me, sing to me! 

Sing me a song full of hope and of truth, 
Brimming with all the sweet fancies of youth! 
Say, though my sorrow I may not forget, 
I have not quite done with happiness yet.
Sing to me, sing to me! 

Lay your soft fingers just here, on my cheek; 
Turn the light lower – there- no, do not speak, 
But sing! My heart thrills at your beautiful voice; 
Sing till I turn from my grief and rejoice.
Sing to me, sing to me!
