Too Nice a Day!

 

I Meant to do My Work Today

~Richard Le Gallienne

 

I meant to do my work today—

But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,

And a butterfly flitted across the field,

 

And all the leaves were calling me.

 

And the wind went sighing over the land,

Tossing the grasses to and fro,

And a rainbow held out its shining hand—

So what could I do but laugh and go?

It’s been one of those kind of days.  Thank you, Lord!
