Evening Prayer in the DOG days of Summer

An extract from our Evening Prayer liturgy for the summer months .. which follows on with a Pint at the Hollybush.
 
Living One be present in the lazy hazy days of Sabbath rest
You who makes the dog day sun to shine
in the halcyon cloud-whipped summer skies
give us grace to let go and to rest this evening
Let our very being uncurl as on an old rug
Our thirsts be slaked as with a cold drink
Our mouths enjoy food in the outside air
And show us how to make time to notice butterfly or buzzard or bee; let the sweet honey of enjoying the moment drip down our souls unaware until tomorrow of how restorative a Sabbath day can be. Come and rest with us we pray
