Ella

 

Queen Ella inspires my writing. Her sequins, satin, and sighs, to the way she wipes her brow. The swing of her head. It all mixes into a bewitching shot of seductive appeal.

What’s not to love about Young’s score, ‘Stella By Starlight’, Ned Washington’s lyrics, and Ella’s sultry swoon? An ‘endless spring’ or ‘Stella by starlight, with moon in her hair.’ Enchanted.

~ Victor Young, Ned Washington, Ella Fitzgerald

Fall in love all over again.

I dream you

in the dark. This is where our love is found. In a place, as far away as moonlight, is where you touch my skin.

 

Your hand slips into mine.

 

I can’t let go. You are the one who lifted me up; the one who left me on my knees.

 

Do you think if I begged the night hard enough

she’d give you back to me?

 

~ As Far Away As Moonlight
