First Line: Ah, the hours when life goes singing
Last Line: Than in days when the golden melody
Subject(s): Love; Melodies; Music & Musicians

Ah, the hours when Life goes singing
And winging along
Through the starry paths of loving,
And Love is so brave and strong!
All the ways burn golden with beauty
And throb with song.

There are times when the song will falter
And fray.
Dim with confusion and pain
Stretches the barren way.
The wings droop useless, forgotten,
Dingy and grey.

Ah, the days when the trailing wings strengthen,
And rhythm returns again!
Just a sad little minor persisting
From struggle and years of pain.
Now the way opens out broad and splendid,
The music grows deeper; more true
Than in days when the golden melody
