Black is the color of my true love's hair

Black is the Color of my True Love's Hair - a beautiful song. I've a friend with whom I was discussing this beautiful idea of returning to god in the ecstasy of love making as the earthly comparison to the high of death. You can see in these lyrics that "'ll write her a letter, just a few short lines, And suffer death ten thousand times...."  This is the highest flight of the human soul. At the time this song was written "to suffer death" also had this greater meaning.

I posted the video "black is the color" on the videos for the site.  I do believe also this song is about the goddess, the goddess of the river and about the highest love between lovers.

Black is the color of my true love's hair
Her lips are like some roses fair
She has the sweetest smile and the gentlest hands.
I love the ground whereon she stands

I love my love and well she knows
I love the ground whereon she goes.
And I wish the day, it soon will come
That she and I will be as one

I'll go to the Clyde and I'll mourn and weep
Where satisfied I never shall be
I'll write her a letter, just a few short lines
And suffer death ten thousand times

Background: This is an old song dating with tune origins probably dating to the 18th century. The lyrics were first recorded in around 1916 and believed to be out of the Appalacian Mountains, although it is so fully engrained in the folk tradition that many believe it to be out of Scotland as attributed by the verse "I'll go to the Clyde" which is a river that runs through Glasgow.

Multi Dimensional Reality

The world as you know it - all that you see, taste, feel and touch, comprises only about 5% of all of the stuff of the universe. The other 95% is what we have considered "nothing" or the "firmament" or the heavens or mystic Other Worlds. This 95% is multi-dimensional and consists of potential realities that may be perceived.
