Pale and withdrawn studded with fading stars the sky grew blasé and the sheep began to stir unaware that later they would return naked and ridiculous-looking to these sloping green hills
A face turned grinning and toothy alert focused with smooth cocked ears and wicked brown eyes

When the sun rose and shot forth a series of dazzling rays the clouds blushed and the last star melted away
When the night departed the sky was deep and glorious and blue
Indignant bleating the steady hum of the hand-piece and the bell-bird's lyrical song all merged together until summer's colour washed upwards completely and the day rushed in like the roar of a symphony.
