Strange thoughts come to the man alone;
'Tis then, if ever, he talks with God,
And views himself as a single clod
In the soil of life where the souls are grown.
'Tis then he questions the why and where,
The start and end of his years and days,
And what is blame and what is praise,
And what is ugly and what is fair.

When a man has drawn from the busy throng
To the sweet retreat of the silent hours,
Low voices whisper of higher powers.
He catches the strain of some far-off song,
And the sham fades out and his eyes can see,
Not the man he is in the day's hot strife
And the greed and grind of a selfish life,
But the soul of the man he is to be.

He feels the throbbing of life divine,
And catches a glimpse of the greater plan;
He questions the purpose and work of man.
In the hours of silence his mind grows fine;
He seeks to learn what is kept unknown;
He turns from self and its garb of clay
And dwells on the soul and the higher way.
Strange thoughts come when a man's alone.

And every night is sweeter still, For when, behind the Fairy hill The tiny Fairy sun goes down, It's sleepy time in Fairy Town! Sleepy time in Fairy Town! Sleep, sleep--sleep-- While the stars of Fairy Town Safe watch keep. All the Fairy babies, so,

Gardening Is Heaps Of Fun! Gardening Is Heaps Of Fun!

Gardening Is Heaps Of Fun!
Gardening is heaps of fun! We are partners with the sun, For we help him make things grow, With our spade and rake and hoe! First we spade the ground, then rake it; Ready for the seeds we make it; Then in furrows carefully Plant them as they ought to be. Soon above the ground we spy Tiny green things push and pry, Little plants that from their night Wake and climb to find the light. They are thirsty, so we give Water first that they may live;
