This is the whole of the song out of which I picked my signature quote...thought you guys might like it. It's my favorite song.

"Long Time Ago"

On the lake where droop'd the willow
Long time ago
Where the rock threw back the billow
Brighter than snow
Dwelt a maid belov'd and cherish'd
By high and low
But with autumn leaf she perish'd
Long time ago

Rock and tree and flowing water
Long time ago
Bird and bee and blossom taught her
Love's spell to know,
While to my fond words she listen'd
Murmuring low
Tenderly her blue eyes glisten'd
Long time ago.


------------------
*Elizabeth*

"Dwelt a maid belov'd and cherish'd by high and low,
But with autumn leaf she perish'd, long time ago..."

Great idea for a signature quote you should have been a maiden fair
I had no idea there where so many people in
the world to day that enjoy the words of
time gone bye
