From A Tear And A Smile - The Life Of Love
by Khalil Gibran (1883-1931)
Read by Richard Mitchley
Let us go into the fields, my beloved,
for the time of harvest approaches,
and the sun's eyes are ripening the grain.
Let us tend the fruit of the earth,
as the Spirit nourishes the grains of Joy
from the seeds of Love, sowed deep in our hearts.
Let us fill our bins with the products of Nature,
as life fills so abundantly the domain of our hearts
with her endless bounty.
Let us make the flowers our bed,and the sky our blanket,
and rest our heads together upon pillows of soft hay.
Let us relax after the day's toil,
and listen to the provoking murmur of the brook.
