Glad that I live am I
That the sky is blue
Glad for the country lanes
And the fall of dew

After the sun the rain
After the rain the sun
This is the way of life
Till the work be done

All that we need to do

Be we low or high
Is to see that I live
Nearer the sky

Lizette Woodworth Reese.

What a profound piece of writing ... yet used as a song for children!

The sun has also brought out the creatures of the wild. So far we have seen one very clean mouse, one clean rat (both pets I suspect), one frog, one hedgehog and now a wild rabbit ... to say nothing of buzzards and a red kite. This is the place to be.
