STOP! STOP! It posted wrong.... how did that line disappear? In the first verse, it begins...

"Farewell, but whenever you welcome the hour
That awakens the night song of mirth in your bower
Then think of the friend who once welcomed it too,
And forgot his own griefs to be happy with you."

Joe, I see that you also asked for the tune. I don't have the time to work out the abc.. maybe someone else has it. I do have a request of you, can you go back into my message just before this one and add the second line that got left out? It would sure make it easier for people trying to copy the lyrics.

You left out one closing angle bracket, Alice, and it made your line disappear. All better now....
