First Line: The leaves are fresh after the rain
Last Line: To be alive on such a day.
Subject(s): Rain; Schools; Students


The leaves are fresh after the rain,
The air is sweet and clear,
The sun is shining warm again,
The sparrows hopping in the lane
Are brisk and full of cheer.

And that is why we dance and play,
And that is why we sing,
Calling out in voices gay,
We will not go to school to-day
Nor learn anything!

It is a happy thing, I say,
To be alive on such a day.
