Excerpt from Moody Days
The critical eye of the public may never peruse these lines.
I am in this way simply striving to lighten the burden of my own mind, which, at times, seems more than I can endure.
Have you ever stood upon a mountain and watched the bea... utiful banks of soft white clouds, as they swiftly ¿oated across the heavens? Or, on a cloudless day, lounged in an easy chair, the air laden with the sweet fragrance of summer, and lifted your eyes to the sky above you, then allow your gaze to wander to the hill-side, from whence the cow-bells' musical chime is wafted to you, as the grazing herd lazily nip the tender green?
Old Brindle eats her fill, then, standing in the shade of the wide-spreading oak, her tail lazily brushing away the festive ¿y, while, now and then, her head is thrown around to her side, to relieve the unpleasant sting of an unusually severe bite, and, finally, she wanders off to the babbling brook, that seems to be singing its own song of praise to the beauties of Nature. She will plunge into therippling waters, forming a pretty picture for the eye. A scene of absolute idleness - idle comfort, while enjoying the cool shade.
