||When I was come into the
house we live in
, I gave
a gentle thump. It squawked, but there were no sparks. Then the
came in the back door. She had not knows why it squawked, but she did tell me to mind it. I so did. The mamma went out again to the
house of Elsie
. When she was gone, I did sing to the baby a new song I did make up today. Most every day I do make up a song. I sing them not when the mamma is in the house, for she does give me most hard spankings when I do start to sing them. Today I did
the baby on the bed as she said. And more I did. I did sing to her the new song. I did sing to her:
Le ciel est gris,
Le champ est tranquille,
Les fleurs dorment,
Maintenant est hiver."
