That shut out the sunshine from all who pass by;
The fields and green pastures, the brooks and the flowers,
Were fashioned alike by omnipotent powers.
Where women and children foul air must endure;
But God gave the open, the fresh country breeze,
Where children may frolic and play as they please.
The peace and the plenty with which it is blest,
The ground and the grass for over pavement-tired feet,
The honey and cream and the good things to eat.
Thank God for the country, thrice blessed are they
Who bathe in its glories and beauties to-day,
Oh, short is our span in the city's fast life!
But hoary heads crowneth the farmer and wife.
~Mrs. Major Arnold
You can find out more information regarding this magical camping place on their website at the Les Ormes Campground. I found all photos and information from the lovely blog Belle Maison 23.
I must add this special place to my bucket list. Anyone else with me, been here or another camping ground that is similar in flavor?
