The Declaration

Martyn Windham-Read



I will love you ‘till the birds
Have lost their way to sing

Until there is no tenderness
All in the face of spring

And I will love you ‘till the babe
Will neither laugh nor cry

‘Till men no more wanderers
And women’s tears are dry

And I will love you ‘till the trees
See neither sun nor rain

‘Till morning holds no mysteries
And love will bring no pain

And I will love you ‘till there be
No grace in hearts of men

‘Till a girl’s eyes will glow no love
I’ll love you until then
