  After I did dishtowel all the dishes that we did use in the breakfast meal, the mamma did send me to get barks for the warming stove . While I was getting barks I did stop to screwtineyes the plump wiggles that were in and under all the barks. Those plump wiggles will grow and change. They will grow and change into beetles. I have seen them do so. I have taken them from the bark and they did so grow into beetles -- after some long time. In the nursery I kept them while they did so change.
  After the barks was in I did go my way to school . I went aside to Saint Firmin by Nonette. I made a stop where the willows grow. I love to touch fingers with the willows. Then I do feel the feels the willows feel. I did tell them all and every one about this being the going-away day of Charlemagne in 814 and the borning day of Henry VII in 1457. Each pussy-willow baby did wear a gray silk tricot . He did look warm. He smiled, "Bonjour, petite Françoise ," in a friendly way. I think he does remember the days in summer when I did drink in inspirations dabbling my toes by his toes there in the singing brook.
