  After I did give Minerva some good-bye pats and advices about bringing up her children, then I did go goes to the house of Sadie McKibben . Menander Euripides Theocritus Thucydides did walk by my side and Brave Horatius came a-following after. When I was come to the house of Sadie McKibben, there was Dear Love . They was glad we was come, and they had likes for Minerva's little cap with the ruffles around it like the morning-cap of Jenny Strong . Dear Love did give Thomas Chatterton Jupiter Zeus some pats on his nice white paws.
  And they did talk on. I did have hears of them saying of the pensée girl with the far-away look in her eyes, that is come again to visit her aunt of the gray calico dress with the black bow at its neck. I was glad she is come again. I whispered to Thomas Chatterton Jupiter Zeus about my glad feels in his left ear. He cuddled up more close. We listened more listens. Dear Love too did say to Sadie McKibben as how it is the man of the long step that whistles most all of the time has great love for the pensée girl with the far-away look in her eyes; and how it is he is afraid to speak to her about this great love he has for her. And more Dear Love did say of how it is he does pick bunches of flowers in the woods for her and then he does lay them by an old log because he has too shy feels to take them on to her.
  Thomas Chatterton Jupiter Zeus did stick out his right front foot. I gave it a pat, and I did give him some throat rubs -- that he had likes for -- and all of the time I was having thinks. I looked looks out the side window of the house of Sadie McKibben . A white cloud was sailing in the sky. A little wind was in the woods. It was calling, "Petite Françoise , come, petite Françoise." I did tell Dear Love and Sadie McKibben there was needs for me to hurry away. They did have understanding . And Sadie McKibben did say it was not long I was staying today, and she would wait waits for my return coming on the morrow . Dear Love did tell me of the pieces she did find in the top of her trunk that were waiting waits to be made into christening robes for little folks that now do have their borning-time. I was glad, for there is needs of more.
