LYRICS

Dancing music, music sad,
Both together, sane and mad;
Oh! The sweetness of the pain!
Laugh and sigh, and laugh again,

Muses bright and Muses pale;
Bare your faces of the veil,
Welcome joy, and welcome sorrow,
Come to-day, and come to-morrow,

Welcome joy, and welcome sorrow,
Come to-day, and come to-morrow,
I do love you both together!

Let me see, and let me write
Of the day, and of the night,
Pines, and lime-trees full in bloom,
And my couch a low grass tomb.

Muses bright and Muses pale,
Bare your faces of the veil,
Welcome joy, and welcome sorrow,
Come to-day, and come to-morrow,

Welcome joy, and welcome sorrow,
Come to-day, and come to-morrow,
I do love you both together!
John Keats (1795-1821)

 

Mourn that which will not come again,
The joy, the strength of early years.
Bow down thy head, and let thy tears
Water the grave where hope lies slain.
For tears are like a summer rain, To murmur in a mourner’s ears,
To soften all the field of fears,
To moisten valleys parched with pain.
And though thy tears will not awake
What lies beneath of young or fair
And sleeps so sound it draws no breath,
Yet, watered thus, the sod may break
In flowers which sweeten all the air,
And fill with life the place of death.
Robert Fuller Murray 
 

our time to fly
joy, joy
hand in hand
running, rushing, running, rushing
over the dawn of our soul

let’s joy-ride in wider strides
our time to fly
joy, joy

let’s race down the road
wheels squealing
joy, joy

charge ahead, hand in hand
running, rushing, running, rushing
our time to fly
over the moon

Rejoice!
Tara Wohlberg
