About the Author:
Pamela Lawson Kerr has lived in Australia for the past forty-five years. Before that her life was divided fairly evenly between Argentina, England and Chile, where her birthplace, Punta Arenas, is the administrative centre of the starkly beautiful and inhospitable southern region. Her British and Norwegian grandparents settled there in the late 19th century.

Lyric

I want to shout it, sing it,
tell it to the world;
I want to strum it, play it,
sing it in the round.

Tell the world I worship you,
Tremble at your touch,
and vow to follow, hold you,
love you oh! so much.

Hold me close, don’t let me go,
cloak me with your calm;
murmur sweetly, whisper low
honeyed words like balm.

Then hand in hand, side by side
we’ll run together,
weather storms and chance the tides—
one mind for ever.
