Come among the birds and flowers,
Linger 'neath the sylvan bowers,
Where Nature spends her magic powers,
And blends with bliss the fleeting hours,
At Chautauqua.

Hear the wood nymph's wooing call,
Adown the wildwood's vibrant hall,
By mossy banks and waterfall,
With ocean breezes kissing all,
At Chautauqua.

Where muses tune their sweetest lyre,
Where Art and Beauty both conspire
With Northern wit and Southern fire,
As the Western spirit rises higher,
At Chautauqua.

Let no carping care pursue you;
Let the limpid Calapooia
And the wild Willamette woo you,
Till the healing waves renew you,
At Chautauqua.
