A host of golden daffodils: Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

With faint dry sound,
Like steps of passing ghosts,

And that group of clouds over there gives me the impression of the stoning of Stephen... I can see the apostle Paul standing there to one side..."
"Uh huh... That's very good... What do you see in the clouds, Charlie Brown?"
"Well, I was going to say I saw a ducky and a horsie, but I changed my mind!”
