It was freezing hot at just gone noon
When I saw the old man, by the light of the moon,
Trudging down the hill, 'til he reached the top,
Where he gradually came to a sudden stop.
He asked for a drink, so I passed him a glass.
He drank upside down to save the top for last.
"Have ye bread?" he asked. (He was thin as a ghost.)
I said I had no bread; would he care for toast?
So we dined together as the sun dipped low
And the eastern sky took a rosy glow;
Then we said our hellos, went our separate ways,
Side by side, into the brand new day.
