All I Desire

Now, Lily.
Do something from this, Mother.
I've always loved it
and it's Daddy's favourite, too.

I, erm...
I better turn down the lights.
"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
"I love thee to the depth
and breadth and height

"My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
"For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
"I love thee to the level
of every day's most quiet need

"By sun and candlelight.
"I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
"I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
"I love thee with a passion put to use
"In my old griefs,
and with my childhood's faith.

"I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,

"I love thee with the breath, smiles, tears,
of all my life!

"And, if God chooses
"I shall but love thee better after death."
Mother, how heavenly, you were wonderful.
Thank you, darling, that's music to my ears.
Peterson, everything is in the bag.
The mister is going, too.
You and me can get married.

- No.
- Don't you like it? Well, then move!

Say more, say like she does.
"I love thee. Lena, I love thee."
Now, put your arms around my neck
and say it. Say it!

I love...
- Won't you please do something else?
- Please.

You don't know what this means
to an actress. I'd love to.

But I'm a believer in "always leave them
asking for something more".

Thanks again.
I have to change. I have to catch the train.
