Lightheartedness And Levity



Bearing in mind the brevity
from the womb to tomb
Lightheartedness and levity
should dispel the gloom

Bearing in mind the brevity
from the launch to end
Lightheartedness and levity
should allow the mend

Bearing in mind the brevity
from the birth to death
Lightheartedness and levity
should carry the breath

Bearing in mind the brevity
from the leap to land
Lightheartedness and levity
should offer the hand

Bearing in mind the brevity
from the start to stop
Lightheartedness and levity
should delay the drop
