And if to lure the truant back be well,

I'm floating in the water, but i dont feel coldness,

Thrush and blue-bird came North together.

Sandpiper

and that every so often the world is bound to shake.
He runs, he runs to the south, finical, awkward,
in a state of controlled panic, a student of Blake.

For passing round the bottle with girls in rags or silk,
In country shawl or Paris cloak, had put my wits astray,
And what's the good of women, for all that they can say

My Sunshine

When I woke up and couldn't behold d light that the sun gives,

Because the sun wasn't here to remind me of your smile,Smile this morning ,I want you to smile this morning because your smile brings hope to everything around you,Am missing your smile,missing your smile early this day.

And I can sing and I can smile,

And, climb we e'er so soft the spinney rails,
All stops as if no bird was anywhere.
