"Act V Scene 1
Summertime about a year ago
The sun shines warmly - and the plants reach up spreading their leaves to absorb dimly the sun light - In the meadows the sheep crop the grass - The farmers cultivate their gardens many people who live in the city - The birds eat the insects and worms - in the sea the little animals continue in the same way as they have for so many millions of years
June, July, August, Sept
The earth moves around the sun quarter and as the earth and moon move around."
