I wander on' beside the stream.
Content to watch the new leaves play,
With resurrection Joy agleara.
Tha radblrd alma a solo clear,
Afar the field Inras chorus sweet.
The Joyous at ream that murmera near,
An endless prayer seems to repeat.
I would jmt wlh a crank to be,
Or give to use a naedleaa bat,
I cut conventionality.
Because I have no Easter hat.
