Love Swings

><

Love swings,

like Basie or Duke

As softly as a morning sunrise

streams into the day

It swings

><

Love swings,

as the breast gently rises

and her breath fills his horn

giving life to the moment

It swings

><

Oh hear,

how it soars so high

and crashes so low

and it swings

><

Hear it,

as my soul fills with color

but is left dark and empty

as it swings

low

sweet rhythm

Coming for to carry me

carry me,

but never deliver me

from love

><

Love swings,

her call irresistible,

my heart’s steady rhythm

a whisper

yet

heard by my lover

whose love is a song

that swings
