THE GEM 5 SEP 2016 : Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air. Ralph Waldo Emerson | THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

We’ve had some scares, but we looked blank

When, resting there and chumming,

One glanced by chance upon the bank

And saw the farmer coming!

And home impressions linger yet

Of cups of sorrow brimming;

I hardly think that we’ll forget

The last day we went swimming.

Verses Popular and Humorous, 1900.http://www.middlemiss.org/lit/poetry/dayswi
