The Music of Your Voice
by C. J. Dennis

The Music of your Voice
By: C. J. Dennis

A vase upon the mantelpiece,
A ship upon the sea,
A goat upon a mountain-top
Are much the same to me;
But when you mention melon jam,
Or picnics by the creek,
Or apple pies, or pantomimes,
I love to hear you speak.

The date of the Magna Charta or
The doings of the Dutch,
Or capes, or towns, or verbs, or nouns
Do not excite me much;
But when you mention motor rides-
Down by the sea for choice
Or chasing games, or chocolates,
I love to hear your voice.
