A love affair with life-


I have a love affair with life-
it's taught me secret things-
it speaks of long ago-
and what the future brings-

I have a love affair with life-
it's taught me in my youth-
to hunger after freedom-
and be a seeker after truth.

I have a love affair with life-
I hope it never goes away-
it finds me living right-
it brought where I am today.

I have a love affair with life-
though it's brought me pain and sorrow-
there's nothing I wouldn't give-
to catch a glimpse of my tomorrow.

I have a love affair with life-
the gifts it gives are free-
it gives me sun, air and water-
best of all, it brought you to me!

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
