From Imaginarylady :

I really loved it. Fascinating, Enchanting, and Dazzling. And I am terribly entranced by the images and the song. Such a romantic and beautiful song. The lovely background images looked gloomy, yet they fit the song and the music. Each of these scenes show amazing elaborate colors of a blue leafy tree, the sparkling spring, the bright sunset, the leafless autumn trees' shadows vibrating like violin strings, and the shining stars of the purple night sky. When I heard the song the first time, it makes me wonder why there is no character in the short.

From Matthew Cooper :

When I was a kid, I never understood this cartoon (I used to watch it all the time on my copy of Make Mine Music.) Though now that I am older, I have figured out this cartoon, and enjoy it! I have always tried to read the letter shown at the beginning, but the only word I have made out so far is Sweetheart. Anyway, I like this short because of the way its done, and the song. (No one's voice but Andy Russel's would have worked!)

From Joe B :

When I heard this song it made me cry because it was so beautiful and romantic and love it so much and I'm learning how to sing it.
