This day of mine was full of tasks --
Of things that should be done.
I hurried 'round from early morn.
Till almost setting sun.
But with my day's work finished, now,
How peaceful seems the view
Of meadow lands and distant hills
That blend from green to blue.

The shadows now are lengthening
O'er the meadows I can see,
Where cows and horses homeward wend,
Grazing contentedly.
There's something that so soothing is,
After a task well done,
In distant hills and meadowlands
Just ere the setting sun.
