Just a whisk brisk sly spry spink spank sprint of a thing theresomewhere, saultering. |aMy greatº blue bedroom, the air so quiet, scarce a cloud. In peace and silence. And let her rain now if she likes. Gently or strongly as she likes. Anyway let her rain for my time is come. I done me best when I was let. A hundred cares, a tithe of troubles and is there one who understands me? One in the thousand of years of the nights? All my life I have been lived among them but now they are becoming lothed to me. And I am lothing their little warm tricks. And lothing their mean cosy turns. And |ballb| the greedy gushes out through their |bsmallb| souls. And |ballb| the lazy leaks down over their brash bodies. My people were not their sort out beyond there so far as I can. For all the bold and bad and bleary they are blamed, the seahags. No! Nor for all the our wild dances in all their wild din. How she was handsome, the wild Amazia, when she would seize to my other breast! And what is she weird, haughty Niluna, that she will snatchº from my ownest hair! And the clash of our cries till we spring to be free. But I'm loothing them that's here and all I lothe. Loonely in me loneness.a| I'm passing out. Oº bitter |aend endinga|!
