I wiz lyin there aye warm aifterneen ‘n the leaves were flutterin slow and easy in that wordless, thochtless wye they hiv o jist bein themsells. Rale peacefae like. In the summer I sometimes sling my hammock between the telephone pole and the Japanese Flowering Cherry. Whilst lying there one warm afternoon I was aware of the leaves fluttering gently in a self contented manner. I empathised and thus knew the peace of them.
