Leisure in the Sun and Air
In this weary life of oursRelated post: Indoors.
Pass too many leaden hours;
In our chronicles of passion
Too much apes the world's dull fashion.
If our spirits strive to be
Pure and high in their degree,
Let us learn the soaring paean
Under God's own empyrean.
Leisure in the sun and air
Makes the spirit strong and fair;
Flaccid veins and pallid features
Are not fit for sky-born creatures.
