(4Eins within a space and a weary wideº space it wast ere wohned a Mookse. The onesomeness wast alltolonely,º archunsitslike, broady oval, |6so. and6|4) |6A aº6| Mookseº he would a walking go |2(My hood! |asays criesa| Antony Romeo),º2| so one |3(4grand sumer grandsumer4)3| evening, |2after |3a great morning and3| his good supper of gammon and spittish,2| having |3drubbed flabelled3| his eyes, |3ascented |apileoled pilleoleda|3| his nostrils, and |3packed up vacticanated3| his ears and |3comforted cama |acamaurroed palliumeda|3| his throatº, he put on his impermeable|1, seized his impugnable,º put his harp on harped on his crown1| and stepped out of his immobile |2De Rure Albo2| |3(|asocold socolldºa| becauld it was chalkfull of masterplasters (4and had borgeously letout gardens strown with cascadas, |5carambas pintacostecas5|, horthoducts and currycombs4))3| and set off |3from Ludstown3| |1a spasso1| to see how badness was badness in the weirdest of all pensible ways.

|99| |1As he soº set off, with his father's sword(4, hisº lancia spezzata,4) he was girded on, and with that between his legs and his heels tarheelsº, the our (4great once4) |6and in6| only |6Breakespeare Bragspear6|, heº looked clanked, to my clinking, |3from veetoes to threetopº3| every inch of an immortal.1|

|99| He had not walked over a |3pair pentia pentiadº3| of parsecs |s7from his azyliums7| when at the turning of |3the wrong lane the Shinshone Lanteran3| |1near

|3(secunding to the one one oneth of the propecies, |6Amnium Amnis6| |aLimena Liminaa| Permanent)3| upon the most unconsciously boggylooking stream he ever |1saw locked his eyes (4on with4)1|. (4Out of the colliens it took a rise by daubing itself Ninon.4) It looked little and it smelt of brown and it thought |2narrow in narrows2| and it talked |1shallow showshallow1|. And as it rinn it dribbled like any lively purl-it-easyº: My, my,º my! Me and me! Little down dream,º don't I love thee!

|99| And, I declare, what was there on the yonder bank of the stream, that would be a river, parched on a limb of the olum|3, bolt downright,3| but the Gripes? And no doubt he was fit to be dried for why had he not been having the juice of his times?

His pips had been neatly all drowned on him; his polps were charging odours every older minute; he was quickly for getting the dresser's desdaign on the flyleaf of his frons; and he was quietly for giving the bailiff's distrain on to the bulkside of his cul de pompe.º In all his specious heavings, as he lived by Optimus Maximus, the Mookse had never seen his |3Dubville3| brooder-on-low so nigh to a pickle.

|1He Adrian (that was the |7Mookse's restingname Mookse now's assumptinome7|)1| (4stuck still stuccstill4) phiz-à-phiz to the Gripes in an (4outfit accessit4) of |s7Aurignacian aurignacians7|. (4But Allmookse must to Moodendº much as Allrouts|5, austereways or wastersways, in roaming5| run through |5Raum Room5|.4) |6He Hic6| sor a stone|6, singularly illud,6| and on |+7that hoc+|7| stone |6he sate his seat |7huc sate hoc seat Seter satt huc sate7|6| which it filled |3quite poposterouslyº3| (4and by acclammitation4) to its fullest justotoryum and (4whereupon whereopum4) with his unfallable |6encyclicling6| (4upon upom4) his alloilable|3, diupetriark of the wouest,3| and the |6athemystsprinkled6| pederect he |1always1| walked with|3, Deusdedit,3| cheek by |6jowl jowel6| with his |6fresherman's frisherman's6| blague, Bellua Triumphansº, |6his |aeveryway addedtoa| wallat's collectium, for the yea longer he lieved yea broader he betaught of it, the fetter, the summe and the haul it cost,6| he looked the |2first and2| last |7laical lakeness micahlike laicness7| of Quartus the Fifth and Quintus the Sixth and Sixtus the Seventh giving all night allnight sitting to |3Leo Lio3| the Faultyfindth.

— Good appetite us, Sirº Mookse! how How do you do it? cheeped the Gripes in a wherry whiggy |3maudelenianº3| woice and the jackasses
{f39, 154}
all within bawl laughed |2and brayed for his intentions2| for they knew their sly toad lowry now. I am |6rarumominum6| blessed to see you, my dear |s7mister mousters7|.

Nuvoletta in her lightdress|3, spunn of sisteen shimmers,º3| was looking down on them, leaning |1on over1| the bannistars and listening all she childishly could. |s7How she was brightened when Shouldrups in his glaubering hochskied his welkinstuck and how she was overcloused overclused when Kneesknobs on his zwivvel was makeacting such a paulse of himshelp!s7| She was alone. All her nubied compinionsº were asleeping with the squirrels. Their mivver, Mrs Moonan, was off |v2for the evening, in the Fuerst quarterºv2| scrubbing the backstepsº |v2at ofv2| Number 28. And as for fuvverº, |2that Skand,º2| why he was up in Norwood's, |3sokaparlor sokaparlour3| eatingº oceans of Voking's Blemish. |1She Nuvoletta1| listened as she reflected herself, though the heavenly one with his constellatria and his emanationsº stood between,º and she tried all she tried to make the Mookse look up at her (but he was |4far fore4| too |4adiaptotously4| farseeing) and to make the Gripes hear how coy she |2was could be2| (though he was much too |4sch schystimatically4| auricular about |s7himself his enss7| to heed her) but it was all |2child's mild's2| vapour |s2lost moists2|. Not even her |1|s7dimmed feignts7|1| reflection|1, Nuvoluccia,1| could they takeº their |s7noses gnosess7| off,º for their minds |4with intrepifide fate and bungless curiasityº4| were |3beset conclaved3| with |2Heliogabolus Heliogobbleus2| and Commodus and |2Enobarbus Enobarbarus2| and whatever |3the coordinal dickens3| they did as |3they their damprauch of papyrs and buchstubs3| said. |s7As if that was their spiration! As if they theirs could duiparate her |saqueendimsa|! As if she would be third perty to search on search proceedings!s7| She tried all the winsome wonsome ways her four winds had taught her. She tossed her |6|asfumatelliecinous sfumastelliacinousa|6| hair like th la princesse de |2la Petite2| Bretagne and she rounded her |2mignons2| arms like Mrs Cornwallis-West and she smiled over herself like the beauty of the image of the pose of the daughter of the queen of the |2Emperor of Ireland Emperour of Irelande2| and she sighed after herself as were she born
{f39, 158}
to bride with Tristis |1Tristior1| Tristissimus. But|6, sweet madonine,6| she might |6just fair6| as well have carried her |s2daisy's grace daisy's worthºs2| to Florida. For the Mookse|6, a dogmad Accanite,6| |s2was weres2| not |3amused amoosed3| and the Gripes|6, a dubliboused Catalick,6| |6was |s7wist wiss7|6| |3painfully pinefully3| obliviscent.

|99| |3“I see,” I see,º3| she sighed.º |3“There are menner.” There are menner.3|

The |3siss of the whisp of the sigh of the softzing |aof ata| the stir of the ver of the grose O arundo of a long one in midias |s7reeds reeds:s7| and3| shades began to glidder along the banks, |s7dusk unto dusk greepsing, greepsing, duusk unto duusks7|, and it was as gloomingº as gloaming could be in the waste of all peacable woldsº. |3Metamnisia was allsoononeº coloroform brune; chiter |acitheriors plain citherior |7splain spiane7|a| an eaulande,º innemorous and unnumerose.3| The Mookseº had |s2a sounds2| eyes |2yet |astill righta|2| but he wouldº not all hear. The Gripes had |s2still lights2| ears |2left2| |1but yet1| he could but ill see. So heº ceased, andº he ceased,º |3tung and trit,3| andº it was |3ever neversoever3| so duskyº of both of them. But still |s3one Moos3| thought |7of the deeps on the deeps of the undths7| he would |7profound on the morrow profoundth come the morrokse7| and still |s3the other Gris3| |7thought of the scrapes he would escape if feeled off of the scripes he would escipe if by grice7| he was had luck |7enough enoupes7|.

O,º how it was |s7dusk duusks7|! |6|aFroma| |7Vallée Vallee7| Maraia |atoa| Grasyaplainaº, |adormimust |s7dormimost dormimusts7|a| echo! Ah dew! Ah dew!6| It was so |s7dusk duusks7| that the tears of night began to fall, atº first by ones
{f10, 126}
and twos
, then by threes and fours, at last by fives and sixes of sevens, for the tired ones were weeping,º as we weep nowº with them. |2O! O! O! O!º Par la pluie!º2|

Then there came down to the (+2one |3hither thither3|+)2| bank a woman of no appearance (I believe she was a Black |2(+with chillsº at her feet+)2|) and she gathered up |7his hoariness7| the |1Moose Mookse1| |7motamourfully7| where he was spread and |7carried cariedº7| him away to her invisible dwelling|3, |athat thatsa| hights, Aquila Rapax,3| for he was the holy sacred solemnº |7and poshup7| spit of her |13bushop's boshop's13| apron. |1So you see the Mookse he was right had reason as I knew and you knew and he knew all along.1| And there came down to the (+2other |3thither hither3|+)2| bank a woman to all important ((+2still we are told though they say+)2| that she (+2is was+)2| comely|2(+, spiteº the cold in her heed+)2|) and, for he was as like it as blow it to a hawker's hank, she plucked down the Gripes|7, torn panicky autotone, in angeu7| |1from his limb1| and |7carried cariad7| |s8him away away its beotitubess8| with her to her unseen
{f39, 159}
shieling|3, it is, De Rore Coeli3|. |1And so the poor Gripes got wrong,º for that is |2always2| how a Gripesº is, always was and always will be.1| And it was never so thoughtful of either of them. And there were left now an only elmtree and but a stone |1and. |6Polled with pietrous, sierreº but saule.6| O, yes!º And1| Nuvoletta, a lass.

Then Nuvoletta reflected for the last time in her little long life and she made up all her myriads of |2drifting2| minds in one. |6She cancelled all her engauzements.6| She climbed over the bannistars. Sheº gave a |s2childish childys2| cloudy cry: Nuée! Nuée!º |2(+A lightdress fluttered.+)2| She was gone. And into the river that had been a stream (for (+2the thousand years had come and gone a thousand of tears had gone onº her and come on her+)2| |4and she was stout and struck on dancing and her muddied name was Missisliffi4|)º there fell a tear, |4a singult tear,4| the loveliest of all tears |1(I mean for those |11crylove fables fans11| who are “keen”º on the pretty-pretty |4commonface4| sort of thing |2you meet by |s3Harrod's hopeharrodss3|2|)1| for it was a |5leap tear leaptear5|. But the river tripped on her by and by, lapping as though her heart was br brook: Why, why, why! Weh,º O weh! I'se so silly to be flowing but I no canna stay!
