This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt features a cat crossing between a couple embracing. Ah – sweet love. And nowhere is the romance of lovers and those wanting to be in love more alive than in the poems and songs recorded in a college girl’s scrapbook.
My great-aunt Velma Davis Woodring kept a scrapbook during her freshman year of college. Here and there in white ink on black paper are school songs, love songs, and poems. Some are humorous. Some are sweet. Some are possibly original, but others are words from popular songs of the day. They form the perfect backdrop for some of my photos that speak for themselves.
Just give me a June nite
The moonlight and you
In my arms with all your charms
‘Neath stars above and we’ll find love
I hold you enfold you
Then dreams will come true.
So give me a June Nite
The Moonlight and you.
|Violetta Davis and Dick Ryan|
Farewell Vain World
My sweetie is a college queenWith too much knowledge in her bean;
A kiss, she argues, carries germs.
Thus my contention she confirms.
For if there’s microbes in a kiss
Then ignorance indeed is bliss.
For when I hold her hand in mine
She quite forgets her learned mind
And when the proper time occurs
She gets mi-crobes and I get hers.
|My in-laws Ervin and Helen.|
Watch it, you 2, or
you'll end up with 8 kids!
