35. In the cold light of morning

"Tomorrow's only a kettle,
whistles away,
in the cold light of day."

34. We set to sail on a packet full of spice, rum, and tea leaves

"Tell the tale of the Jewess and the Mandarin Chinese boy,
He led her down from her gilded canopy of cloth.
And through her blindfold she could make out the figures there before her,
And how the air was thick with incense, cardamom, and myrrh."

“If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow,
Don’t be alarmed now.
It’s just a spring clean for the May Queen.”
