Let’s Face The Music And Dance by composer and lyricist Irving Berlin  -+- 1936 = 2018 Pay attention, observe, listen well There may be trouble ahead But while there’s moonlight and music and love and romance Let’s face the music and dance Before the fiddlers have fled Before they ask us to pay the bill and while we still have the chance Let’s face the music and dance Soon we’ll be without the moon, humming a different tune and then There may be teardrops to shed So while there’s moonlight and music and love and romance Let’s face the music and dance, dance Let’s face the music and dance
Splendour in the Grass What though the radiance which was once so bright Be now for ever taken from my sight, Though nothing can bring back the hour Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower, We will grieve not, rather find Strength in what remains behind; In the primal sympathy Which having been must ever be; In the soothing thoughts that spring Out of human suffering; In the faith that looks through death, In years that bring the philosophic mind. William Wordsworth 1770-1850 “Though nothing can bring back the hour Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower, We will grieve not, rather find Strength in what remains behind.” The words, immediately above, are quoted in the film, Splendor in the Grass whose star, Natalie Wood, left us too early in her life and ours. The film is a must see! It is the poignant story of a young girl coming of age, as she overcomes her struggles, to be a whole human being.
