Always and ever

Another verse came to me when wandering in Brooklyn's first park: Fort Greene Park. Depending on your source, Walt Whitman either started the park or rallied support for it in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.



Always and ever
The love returns,
This is the love
That aches and yearns,
Always and ever
The love returns.

Always and ever,
Always and ever,
If talk turns to treasure,
Know only this is forever,
Always and ever
The love returns.

Always and ever,
When thoughts turn to never,
This is the fire
That always burns.
Always and ever
The love returns.
