Idem the Same

I knew too that through them I knew too that he was through, I knew
too that he threw them. I knew too that they were through,
I knew too I
knew too, I knew I knew them.
I knew to them.
If they tear a hunter through, if they tear through a
hunter, if they tear
through a hunt and a hunter, if they tear through the
different sizes of the
six, the different sizes of the six which are these, a
woman with a white
package under one arm and a black package, under the other
arm and dressed
in brown with a white blouse, the second Saint Joseph the
third a hunter
in a blue coat and black garters and a plaid cap, a fourth
a knifew grinder who
is full faced and a very little woman with black hair and a
yellow hat and an
excellently smiling appropriate soldier. All these as you please.
In the meantime examples of the same lily. In this way
please have you
rung.

What Do I see

A very little snail.
A medium sized turkey.
A small band of sheep.
A fair orange tree.
All nice wives are like that.
Listen to them from here.
Oh.
You did not have an answer.
Here.
Yes.

A Very Valentine

Very fine is my valentine.
Very fine and very mine.
Very mine is my valentine very mine and very fine.
Very fine is my valentine and mine, very fine very
mine and mine is my valentine.

Why Do You Feel Differently

Why do you feel differently about a very little snail and a big
one.
Why do you feel differently about a medium sized turkey and a
very large one.
Why do you feel differently about a small band of sheep and
several sheep that are riding.
Why do you feel differently about a fair orange tree and one
that has blossoms as well.
Oh very well.
All nice wives are like that.
To Be.
No Please.
To Be.
They can please
Not to be
Do they please.
Not to be
Do they not please
Yes please.
Do they please
No please.
Do they not please
No please.
Do they please.
Please.
If you please.
And if you please.
And if they please
And they please.
To be pleased.
Not to be pleased.
Not to be displeased.
To be pleased and to please.

Kneeling

One two three four five six seven eight nine and ten.
The tenth is a little one kneeling and giving away a rooster with
this feeling.
I have mentioned one, four five seven eight and nine.
Two is also giving away an animal.
Three is changed as to disposition.
Six is in question if we mean mother and daughter, black and
black caught her, and she offers to be three she offers it to me.
That is very right and should come out below and just so.

Bundles for Them

A HISTORY OF GIVING BUNDLES

We were able to notice that each one in a way carried a
bundle, they
were not a trouble to them nor were they all bundles as
some of them were
chickens some of them pheasants some of them sheep and some of them
bundles, they were not a trouble to them and then indeed we
learned that
it was the principal recreation and they were so arranged
that they were
not given away, and to-day they were given away.
I will not look at them again.
They will not look for them again.
They have not seen them here again.
They are in there and we hear them again.
In which way are stars brighter then they are. When we have come to
this decision. We mention many thousands of buds. And when I close my
eyes I see them.
If you hear her snore
It is not before you love her
You love her so that to be her beau is very lovely
She is sweetly there and her curly hair is very lovely
She is sweetly here and I am very near and that is very lovely.
She is my tender sweet and her little feet are stretched out well
which is a treat and very lovely
Her little tender nose is between her little eyes which close and
are very lovely.
She is very lovely and mine which is very lovely.

On Her Way

If you can see why she feels that she kneels if you can
see why he knows
that he shows what he bestows, if you can see why they share what they
share, need we question that there is no doubt that by this
time if they had
intended to come they would have sent some notice of such
intention. She
and they and indeed the decision itself is not early dissatisfaction.

In This Way

Keys please, it is useless to alarm any one it is
useless to alarm some one
it is useless to be alarming and to get fertility in
gardens in salads in heli-
otrope and in dishes. Dishes and wishes are mentioned and dishes and
wishes are not capable of darkness. We like sheep. We like
sheep. And so
does he.

Let Us Describe

Let us describe how they went. It was a very windy night
and the road
although in excellent condition and extremely well graded
has many turnings
and although the curves are not sharp the rise is
considerable. It was a
very windy night and some of the larger vehicles found it
more prudent not
to venture. Inconsequence some of those who had planned to go were
unable to do so. Many others did go and there was a
sacrifice, of what shall
we, a sheep, a hen, a cock, a village, a ruin, and all that
and then that having
been blessed let us bless it.
