Quaver of (posits from Thomas B. Costain)

only impatience

usual quaver of

more than a hint of mockery

‘but mother is ill’

complaining wheels


near the kitchen miller

a nook of pastry


cheese on a large scale

fat lands

quads and lanes

an old Crusader

grim purpose


all Crusaders stink

orange eyes

fighting geography

dust and fly-specks

Kick a hat (threads from John Galsworthy)

fashion unbecoming


talk them out

filching sincerity

pickled in these pages


the name of sympathy

June 15, 1886

even Aunt Ann

strange and unsafe

fair share of fresh air

of sniff

cheeks and hallows

the origin of doubt

significant trifle

distinct a snob

resolute face

an Apple Charlotte came

olives were removed

if only

if only what

his face to the breeze

she kicked a man’s hat
