They are really nice Chrissy61.

I especially like

Just because someone doesn't love you
in the way you want them to,
doesn't mean that they don't love you
with all they've got.

and

Once in awhile,
Right in the middle of an ordinary life,
Love gives us a fairy tale.

Dropping this one in here
Its a nice one for Valentines Day :)


Does you know the story of 'straw' 'berries'?

There is a traditional song that goes with this legend, and I dont have an english version, but I'll try to relate the story without it.

As background: Have you ever hunted wild strawberries? If so you will know they are tiny, very sweet, and very adept at hiding! To find them is a joy, and often takes a skilled hunter, knowing the places they might hide to grow. In a world filled with vigorously growing berries in the forest....these are the 'prize'.




Many years ago when a boy would court a girl
It wasnt just 'do ya wanna date'? or out the door he'd be hurled
There was a gentle art of showing that his thoughts were keen
And to the parents house would come, with intentions, not just dreams

One way to show his love was real, to test his intended's zeal
To show the parents that he had the stuff that made it real
Was in an act of proving that his hunting skills were honed
And also that he'd think of her and spoils be brought to home

And so the lad would go to forest, take himself a straw
A long and skinny piece of grass, to present at parents door
And then a hunting he would go, to find the blessed sweets
The wild untamed small berries, to present to his love as treats

And as he wandered through the glades, he sang a little song
And hunted these small berries through the morn and all day long
Each tiny berry that he found, he threaded on the straw
A bead of love for his intended, then he'd hunt for more

And as his bounty grew, and twas enough to round her wrist
He knew that he just had to hunt for more, less love be missed
And so each corner of the forest, swept by his young eyes
As hunters instincts keened in him, to win his hoped for prize

And sing his song he did for her, and as his berries grew
His love he worked so hard for in these berries, now he knew
As day past high and still that straw would fit only her throat
He keened his senses one more time, so love would not be broke

And as he hunted, teasingly these berries smelled so sweet
And as he'd hunted all day long, had nothing himself to eat
At this point he could make a choice, and eat his just desserts
Or test if his own love was true, hunt on, although it hurt

If he could find the berries that would fill that blessed straw
And with each bead of sweetness added, love his bride still more
He would, when had his berry straw, present himself to door
Of parents and hold out his off'ring, ask for nothing more

And if his love accepted it, and wore the berry straw
And ate each tasty morsel from it, wanting ever more
Each bead that held his love for her, in gentle hands was held

His offer was accepted and, in her, his love now dwelled


(c) *champrins*

=============================================

Next time you eat a 'straw-berry', or a lover slips one into your glass of champagne
Spare a thought for where the name came from .....this 'fruit of love'
And enjoy each tiny morsel :)

Happy Valentines Day Everyone

An Aussie Valentine

Of course I love ya darlin
You're a bloody top-notch bird
And when I say you're gorgeous
I mean every single word

So ya bum is on the big side
I don't mind a bit of flab
It means that when I'm ready
There's something there to grab

So your belly isn't flat no more
I tell ya, I don't care
So long as when I cuddle ya
I can get my arms round there

No sheila who is your age
Has nice round perky breasts
They just gave in to gravity
But I know ya did ya best

I'm tellin' ya the truth now
I never tell ya lies
I think it's very sexy
That you've got dimples on ya thighs

I swear on me grave now
The moment that we met
I thought you was as good as
I was ever gonna get

No matter what you look like
I'll always love ya dear
Now shut up while the footy's on
And fetch another beer.

Just You

You are the reason i sleep well at night
you are the one a shining light
you are the reason for making me feel great

if once in a lifetime someone has made my heart true
then that special someone is just you

"We fall in love when our imagination projects nonexistent perfection upon another person. One day, the fantasy evaporates and with it, love dies."
-- Spanish philosopher Jose Ortega y Gasset

"I love you, but I'm not in love with you."
-- Heard a million times

"Love is like a rose. It may look beautiful, but it's got thorns."
