About Going Out, Out in the Sunshine, Out in the Rain,
Out in the Streets, Out by the Sea, Out in the Snow and Out in the Fields.
GOING OUT! The very sound is delightful.
Out into the streets where such crowds of people are where there are shops and horses, coaches, carriages, tram cars, dogs, and all sorts of interesting objects to look at and talk about.
Out into the fields, where trees grow, and the leaves rustle in the wind; where the sweet smelling and beautiful wild flowers are;
where every hedgerow is a museum of curiosities; where the birds sing so charmingly;
and the corn and barley bow so gracefully as the breeze goes by; where hay is cut and where sheep and cattle feed,
and there is plenty of room to run, and may we shout as loudly as we please, and all that sort of thing!
