I write what I feel…

Some Enchanted Evening


Sorry, no time – no rhyme. But a golden oldie for today… enjoy!

Some Enchanted Evening

Some enchanted evening
You may see a stranger,
you may see a stranger
Across a crowded room
And somehow you know,
You know even then
That somewhere you’ll see her
Again and again.

Some enchanted evening
Someone may be laughin’,
You may hear her laughin’
Across a crowded room
And night after night,
As strange as it seems
The sound of her laughter
Will sing in your dreams.

Who can explain it?
Who can tell you why?
Fools give you reasons,
Wise men never try.

Some enchanted evening
When you find your true love,
When you feel her call you
Across a crowded room,
Then fly to her side,
And make her your own
Or all through your life you
May dream all alone.

Once you have found her,
Never let her go.
Once you have found her,
Never let her go!

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

    • Aah, yes, I love that too. There are so many really lovely songs. Thank you, Kate, for the link to the older generation of British poets. I appreciate it. I know very little about poets and poetry forms, etc. I listened to the one Scottish gentleman reading his and loved it. When I write it just comes and I read it aloud and clean it up and polish it if I can. Sorry I must go. Busy on Messenger to a friend in Canada.


  8. This is such a beautiful song. The melody is so well crafted that it moves me every single time. Love it!
