10/20/17 - NNHS Newsletter - Whispering Grass
“That we may mark with wonder and chaste
At hour of noon, when, with our limbs outspread
Lazily in the whispering grass, we lie
To gaze out fully upon the windy sky-
Far, far away, and kindly, friend with friend
To talk the old, old talk that has no end,
Roaming-without a name-without a chart
The unknown garden of another's heart.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
It's time again for a Golden Oldie, this one from 1940.BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1aeuuklqXM - Whispering Grass - The Ink Spots
