Twinkles around my first time found, a circus party tomorrow bound. My flight tonight, to read and write,
is on the eve of Farie Enchantment and circus right. A wind did blow in the wish house a glow, and the humming bird and mole watched the whole show. So with ease as lil' miss guess who, wakes in the breeze and has crumpets and tea the soiree will bee.
