with a freshness as crisp as a new day, A cheerful smile greeting
me on the way,
early sun extending its arms through the window, The gurgle of an

Frisky swirling in his rapturous bark, The love of children in their
moments of peaceful solitary retreat,
The harmony, the melody, the charm of the street,

Shying away in a golden haze,
swoops in -- a lover’s mild touch
upon the trees and the flowers -- a gentle brush.

The stars above shimmering in twilight,
alas, we stream from far and near
Home, it is, our dear family together.
