AN IDLE SONG, by            
First Line: Free living, free giving, may scarce be undone
Last Line: But the love that is given, none taketh again.


FREE living, free giving, may scarce be undone.
What magic recaptures the rays of the sun?
They are fled, they are sped to the eyelids of men,
And the light that is given, none taketh again.
Sap springing, lark singing, and young hearts afire
With the tender green flame of an April desire.
It may die, it may lie like brown reeds in the fen,
But the love that is given, none taketh again.
