'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free, 'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,And when we find ourselves in the place just right, 'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.When true simplicity is gain'd To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,To turn, turn will be our delight 'Till by turning, turning we come round right.
The barber man was small and flash, as barbers mostly are,He wore a strike-your-fancy sash, he smoked a huge cigar;He was a humorist of note and keen at repartee,He laid the odds and kept a "tote", whatever that may be,And when he saw our friend arrive, he whispered, "Here's a lark!Just watch me catch him all alive, this man from Ironbark."andrew paterson
Can such things be,And overcome us like a summer's cloud,Without our special wonder?william shakespeare
