HAY-MAKING. Hark! what noise is that! It is the mower whetting his scythe. He is going to cut down the grass and the pretty flowers. The scythe is very sharp. Do not go too near it. Come into this field. See! all the grass is cut down,
There is a great number of men and women with their forks and rakes. They toss, and spread, and turn the new-mown grass. How hard they work! Come let us help to make hay. 0! it is very hot! No matter; we must make hay while the sun shines.
How sweet the hay smells! When the hay is quite dry, it must be made into stacks. Hay is for sheep, cows, and horses to eat in winter, when the grass does not grow.
THUNDER AND LIGHTNING There has not been any rain for a great while. The ground is very dry and hard. The grass does not look green, as it used to do. . It is brown: it is scorched by the sun. If it do not rain soon, we must water the trees and flowers, else they will die.
The sun does not shine now: but it is very hot. It is quite sultry. There is no wind at all. The leaves on the trees do not inove. The sky looks very black : and how dark it is! A bright light shone through the room. It did not last long. It was lightning.
Lightning comes from the clouds. Now it lightens again. What a noise there is in the air, just over our heads : That is thunder. How loud the thunder is ! It begins to rain. O what large drops ! Now it rains very fast.
