"One can never know for sure
what a deserted area looks like."
(1937 – 2008)
The most magnificent moments of all
And summertime memories, both great and small,
May be found in solace, as nature observes,
For these are occasions that quiet our nerves.
When rumors may shake us and make us to fret,
Spontaneous uprisings cause a cold sweat –
‘Tis then we escape to the dust and the grime,
For days in the pasture are ne’er wasted time.
So take me away from the ring and the race;
Let me escape to my own private place.
Sharing the meadow with those I adore
Rejuvenates me for what life has in store.
