“Life in the barn…”

Life in the barn was very good–night and day,

winter and summer, spring and fall, dull days and bright days.

It was the best place to be, thought Wilbur,

this warm delicious cellar, with the garrulous geese,

the changing seasons, the heat of the sun,

the passage of swallows, the nearness of rats, the sameness

of sheep, the love of spiders, the smell of manure,

and the glory of everything.

–E.B. White, Charlotte’s Web
