England’s Best. (simple pleasures)

 A dappled lawn, the song of birds,

and daisies with their arms



Every leaf with open palm offering

shade to those below.


Soft breezes all their secrets tell

are whispering through the trees.


A little dog in doorway curled

has grass seed in his fur.


A summer day of England's best

her simple pleasures to bestow.
