A more perfect embodiment of physical enjoyment could scarcely be found than is exhibited in the lazy young fellow before us. He is so comfortable, stretched at full length, there in the tall grass on the hill slope, and with the broad meadow and heatherland extending far away before him! His dumb charge share his inactivity; the ram of the flock alone has come to see if his young master is doing his duty faithfully in keeping watch over him and his family. At this mark of thoughtfulness the lad seems highly amused, if we may believe his laughing mouth and roguish eyes. It is the hour of rest and indolence; and one can almost feel the burning noon-sun, and the air seems charged with one thousand and one sounds which only enhance the silence of a country landscape. [P. 20.]
