CHAMBER MUSIC: 25, by         Recitation     Poet's Biography
First Line: Lightly come or lightly go
Last Line: When the heart is heaviest.

Lightly come or lightly go:

Though thy heart presage thee woe,

Vales and many a wasted sun,

Oread let thy laughter run,

Till the irreverent mountain air
Ripple all thy flying hair.

Lightly, lightly -- - ever so:

Clouds that wrap the vales below

At the hour of evenstar

Lowliest attendants are;

Love and laughter song-confessed
When the heart is heaviest.
