    TEXT
    AWAY from the city
    And into the sun,
    Out of the country,
    Run! Run! Run!

    Run in the raindrops!
    Run beneath the trees!
    Run little races
    With each little breeze!

    Run down the hillside,
    Run up the lane;
    Run through the meadow,
    Then run back again!

    Run and be merry
    All through the day!
    Run to the country,
    Away!Away!
    - Mary Daunt
