Subject: Happy! - July 27

Happy Birthday!

English poet,

Hilaire Belloc

born 7/27/1870 (in France)

He wrote:

        On Sussex Downs, where I was bred,
        In rains where autumn lanes are red,
        Where Arun tumbles in his bed
        And dusty gales go by.

                "Sussex Drinking Song" (Tune set by Martyn Wyndham-Read to the
                 Irish rebel tune "The West's Awake")
