O perfect day:Whereon shall no man work, but play-Whereon it is enough for me,Not to be doing, but to be!The sunset rays touched to strange and wondrous beauty the copper-coloured tops of the gum trees in their leafy homes, for Midsummer had arrived with both hands outstretched and filled to overflowing with gifts of God to man. The dress that she wore was exceeding magnificent, worthy of such a glorious gift-bringer, composed as it was of the reds of sunsets, the billowy waves of yellow cornfields, the indigo of Southern skies, the crimson of luscious fruits, the russet-browns of myriad gum saplings, with which was intermingled the prevailing grey-green tint of the Australian bush.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
