Things couldn't be hunky-dorier

Everything is going well...

A poem
Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote all but the last two verses.
Come, rest awhile, and let us idly stray
In glimmering valleys, cool and far away.

Come from the greedy mart, the troubled street,
And listen to the music, faint and sweet,

That echoes ever to a listening ear,
Unheard by those who will not pause to hear

The wayward chimes of memory's pensive bells,
Wind-blown o'er misty hills and curtained dells.

One step aside and dewy buds unclose
The sweetness of the violet and the rose;

Song and romance still linger in the green,
Emblossomed ways by you so seldom seen,

And near at hand, would you but see them, lie
All lovely things beloved in days gone by.

You have forgotten what it is to smile
In your too busy life come, rest awhile.

Then wend your weary way to Weston Creek
And after having rested for a week

You’re too relaxed to get into the race
And won’t match speedygeoff’s amazing pace.

Can anyone guess where today’s title is from? Hint - Series 1 Episode 6 of ...


  1. "That's odd... according to this reading, you're clinically dead."

    Is that right?
    :o) Mon

  2. Yes I think I remember that quote from the same episode, are you playing fair? If so, good memory, that.

  3. Same episode was a total fluke.... I was actually just hoping for the same series!
