Lyrics:
"While writing lyrics for 'Very Warm For May' I saw this old couple on Santa
Monica beach.  I couldn't proceed with my work on the play until I had
written some recognition of the pleasure these two happy strangers had given
me.  I set the words to a melody written by Kern several years before." -
Oscar Hammertein II


I have seen a line of snow-white birds
Drawn across an evening sky.
I have seen divine, unspoken words
Shining in a lover's eye.
I have seen moonlight on a mountaintop,
Silver and cool and still.
I have heard church bells faintly echoing
Over a distant hill.
Close enough to beauty I have been,
And, in all the world wide land,
Here's the sweetest sight that I have seen~
One old couple walking hand in hand.
