Calico Sky in My Eye

A  L  O  H  A !
Calico Sky
" Calico Pie,
The little Birds fly 
Down to the calico tree,
Their wings were blue,
And they sang "Tilly-loo!"
Till away they flew--
And they never came back to me! "
                       Edward Lear

" Most of the shadows 
of this life are
 caused by standing in
 one's own sunshine. "
