|The salal's little askings
|I so did. I got
Thomas Chatterton Jupiter Zeus
, and we went to the woods.
Louis II, le Grand Condé
, did ride in the sleeve of my warm red dress. As we did go along, the leaves of salal did make little rustles. They were little askings. They had wants to know what day this was. I made stops along the way to tell them it was the
of Gentile Bellini in 1507 and Sir Joshua Reynolds in 1792 and John Keats in 1821 and the
of George Frederick Handel in 1685. I have thinks they and the tall fir trees were glad to know.
