First Line: In lighter vein, -- blue eyes and rosy lips
Last Line: In lighter vein.
Subject(s): Happiness; Joy; Delight

IN lighter vein, -- blue eyes and rosy lips,
Gay songs and dances, jests and merry quips;
No thought of the great mysteries of Pain
And Life and Death, but just a clear refrain,

That in 'twixt thoughts of love and laughter slips,
Light as the foam that from the oar-blade drips, --
Such is the measure of our careless strain,
In lighter vein.

Safe into port come all our wandering ships,
From those dim lands o'er which the horizon dips;
Our Fancy's castles prove not all in Spain;
Oh, life is fair and every path is plain,
If we but woo the muse who ever trips
In lighter vein.
