|Thank song in the Woods
||Very early on the morning of today I did go
, for this is the
of Saint Louis in 1270. I went there to sing a thank song for his goodness and to say prayers. I did sing the song of Saint Louis that
did teach me to sing. The little leaves on the bushes growing there under the grand trees -- their little leaves did whisper little whispers. I have thinks those little whispers were thank songs for the goodness of Saint Louis. Sometimes I did hear little bird voices in between the singing of the songs. I have thinks they were singing the same thank song I did sing only they were singing it in their way. And when I came again home, the brook was singing the same song.
