It remains one of those songs you simply cannot hear enough. As a teen I remember sitting on the front porch with my girlfriend on Clinton Ave in Hamilton, Ohio and hearing this song. As her sports minded boyfriend our views of the song were quite different at the time. Well over a half century later I don't have adequate words to describe the wonderful poetry of these beautiful Earl Grant best love song lyrics.
And why no mention of this Earl Grant love song on the Best Wedding love songs list? Such a truly beautiful song with words that reflect the long lasting meaning of love. If you or someone you know is getting married in the near future listen to this song and imagine dancing to your song with these beautiful lyrics. Enjoy this wonderful love song and lyrics and then continue to "The End" below the video. At the end of a rainbow, you'll find a pot of gold At the end of a story, you'll find it's all been told But our love has a treasure our hearts always spend And it has a story without any end.
At the end of a river, the water stops its flow At the end of a highway, there's no place you can go But just tell me you love and you are only mine And our love will go on 'til the end of time.

Jul 13, Sylvester rated it liked it Shelves: , life-and-death , poetry. An interesting collection. Not necessarily the poet's last written poem, although some are, but the poem most about ending, culmination, or death. Each poem has an introduction by Bloom, explaining his choice and telling a little about the poet.
And so I discovered that I do not much care to know about the poet. It's distracting! It doesn't help me get into the meaning of the poem. And apparently poets are troubled souls, suicidal, self-loathing individuals for the most part. Are happy p An interesting collection. Are happy poets so rare? Anyway - a lot of great poems. Here's one I liked. The Dragonfly You are made of almost nothing But of enough To be great eyes And diaphanous double vans; Unending hunger Grappling love.
Link between water and air, Earth repels you. Light touches you only to shift into irridescence Upon your body and wings. Twice-born, predator, You split into the heat. Swift beyond calculation or capture You dart into the shadow Which consumes you. You rocket into the day.
But at last, when the wind flattens the grasses, For you, the design and purpose stop. And you fall With the other husks of summer. Jun 04, Joline Moore rated it liked it. The sheer undertaking of what Mr. Bloom did here is admiral and daunting. The compiled "last" poems of poets spanning s to present. Unfortunately, the poems here are not a good representation of the poets work.
They are almost all tedious, confusing, terrible and death-centric. I also have never heard of many of these "great poets " In any case, some of the stories behind the authors' demise were interesting, though worriso The sheer undertaking of what Mr.
In any case, some of the stories behind the authors' demise were interesting, though worrisome as I too am a poet! It would seem most died young , committed suicide most by drowning , were alcoholics or drug addicts, had "homo-erotic tendencies" as the author put it, or died of TB! May 31, Lara Freitas rated it really liked it Shelves: It took me sooo long to finish this, mostly because I'm not a native english speaker and the first poems took a long time to get through.
In any case, it's an amazing read. The variety of authors although not very diverse was great for never allowing boredom to set in, not to mention making new acquaintances in the genre, and the different perspectives on the at first grim subject were very interesting. Oct 28, Paul Wilner rated it it was amazing. Wonderful collection, brilliantly selected. The critical introduction is less dense than Bloom's usual ouevre, and the brief precis' before each poem, while idiosyncratic, are smart and telling.
I think this may be my favorite of Bloom's works - he's searching for a thesis, as usual - but the examples are Well done, Professor Bloom. Ultimate irony that this notice should be posted on Good Reads, though - serves the old curmudgeon right! Feb 10, Cynthia Egbert rated it it was ok Shelves: library. I didn't finish this one because I got so frustrated with Mr. Bloom's interpretations and his overbearing and condescending manner. I read only the chapters from poets that I had a real interest in and then returned it to the library.
I have only read the poems in this book, only randomly a few of the introduction Bloom gave to each one. And because there are so many different poems from so many different authors in here, I don't rate this book. Collection of last poems written. Just fun to pick through and in some cases revisit poets I had forgotten about. Sep 14, John rated it really liked it.
Bloom, in an elegaic mood, has put together a collection of poems from dead poets--beginning with Spenser and ending with Agha Shahid Ali that all have a certain feeling of finality to them; not necessary the last poems the authors wrote, but almost invariably something from near their ends.
Both the poems and the fairly long introductory remarks accompanying each make worthwhile reading he has strong opinions , and the entries can be dipped into or read in any order. Here are some Bloom, in an elegaic mood, has put together a collection of poems from dead poets--beginning with Spenser and ending with Agha Shahid Ali that all have a certain feeling of finality to them; not necessary the last poems the authors wrote, but almost invariably something from near their ends.
Here are some lines I highlighted from Bloom if not otherwise noted, from me if in brackets : American poets keep going down to the shoreline to struggle with their daemons.
Robert Frost's line in his essay "The Figure A Poem Makes": "it runs a course of lucky events, and ends in a clarification of life-not necessarily a great clarification, such as sects and cults are founded on, but in a momentary stay against confusion.
For the late Amy Clampitt, a poet I knew and revered, at the close a silence opens. O who will tell me where He found thee at that dead and silent hour! Henry Vaughan There is in God some say a deep but dazzling darkness Henry Vaughan At 79, a decade younger than Landor in this poem, I read it with dark recognition.
