XXV Sierra Stinson

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.

           — James Joyce
