A Collection: Stardust by Nat King Cole

Sometimes you come across a song that moves you right down deep in your soul. I wanted to start a category on my blog for those songs or poems that are so lyrical, so poetic, so beautiful that they can’t help but touch you.


And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we’re apart

You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by

Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely night dreaming of a song
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
Now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song

Beside a garden wall
When stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale tells his fairy tale
A paradise where roses bloom
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love’s refrain

The lyrics in this song are just so gorgeous in their imagery but I also want to say that I just love the instrumentation that accompanies Nat King Cole. Those singing violins and full orchestra really encapsulate the beautiful, majestic, bittersweetness of the lyrics. You can just imagine him as he is swept up into the ‘memory of love’s refrain.’ Gorgeous! I’m getting teary as I write this. It’s just so beautiful!

I’d love to hear from you guys. Do you have lyrics or poems that are just so beautiful that they make your soul cry?
