An Ancient gaffer once I knew,

Who puffed a pipe and tossed a tankard;

He claimed a hundred years or two,

And for a dozen more he hankered;

So o'er a pint I asked how he

Had kept his timbers tight together;

He grinned and answered: "It maun be

Because I likes all kinds o' weather.

"Fore every morn when I get up

I lights my clay pipe wi' a cinder,

And as me mug o' tea I sup

I looks from out the cottage winder;

And if it's shade or if it's shine

Or wind or snow befit to freeze me,

I always say: 'Well, now that's fine . . .

It's just the sorto' day to please me.'

"For I have found it wise in life

To take the luck the way it's coming;

A wake, a worry or a wife -

Just carry on and keep a-humming.

And so I lights me pipe o' clay,

And through the morn on blizzard borders,

I chuckle in me guts and say:

'It's just the day the doctor orders.'"

A mighty good philosophy

Thought I, and leads to longer living,

To make the best of things that be,

And take the weather of God's giving;

So though the sky be ashen grey,

And winds be edged and sleet be slanting,

Heap faggots on the fire and say:

"It's just the kind of day I'm wanting."
