"Dear me, don't you want to be out in this fine
weather?" --said mother, who sat on the steps and sang.

It was such a lovely sunshine-day,
The house and the yard couldn't hold me;
A meadow I found, on my back I lay,

The Mother's Song

Drowned it shall not be, but living,
Till Thou salvation art giving.

[Hata Bildir]
