You're the One (click to listen)

A love song to my wife which I started when I began dating her back in 1972.

I Take My Leave (click to listen)

The words are from "Gawain's Leave-Taking," a partial translation by J.R.R. Tolkien of a poem found in a group of 14th-century lyrics with refrains in the Vernon manuscript in the Bodleian Library at Oxford. The original poem has no connection with Sir Gawain, although Tolkien, by assigning this title to the poem extract, is clearly referencing Gawain's departure from the castle of Sir Bertilak to go to the tryst at the Green Chapel.
