Creatures

snow still lies upon the ground          it didnt
do much damage        the buffalo hopped from
one perch to another       the ground was
too steep to bring up a lorry         the
octopus uttered a short cry of warning         whales lay everywhere
on the brown earth           moonlight shone upon the village

the ground was too steep to bring up a lorry
the sky broke more &
more         a motorbike rounded the drive       an octopus rummaged its way
through the rye        the jellyfish
had a worried expression         the pelican ran
to the middle of the meadow

moonlight shone upon the village            it was
all mysterious & innocent         the hills
opened up reluctantly        the
hills opened up reluctantly

monkeys have it harder than
most         goats rummaged through the rye        the snail strutted
across the grass          the buffalo twitched its tail
very feebly        there were several new flowers out
it was all mysterious & innocent         the pelican ran
to the middle of a meadow      there
were several new flowers out

the island was quite green        the peacock was
already rejoicing        they waited outside
my house        they waited outside my house

goats lay everywhere on the brown earth they didnt
do much damage       a
motorbike rounded the drive        the whale was
already rejoicing           the chameleon uttered
a short cry of warning         a mongoose disappeared
in the thicket        snow still lies upon the ground        the jellyfish
hopped from one perch to another
the lake calm & partly ruffled       the
lake calm & partly ruffled

the sky broke more & more        the
swan disappeared in the thicket      the peacock had a
worried expression        the snail twitched its tail
feebly       the chameleon strutted across the grass        the
island was quite green     the swan was
no longer flying        the mongoose was no longer
flying
