a coat of cornflower blue

worthy man

stupid good nature

sou by sou

died on the fields

the Countess might sing her praises

praises they do not hear

like all narrow natures

soup, boiled beef plate of vegetables

a dingy olive gray

repulsion in some

as oysters cling

November 1819

made from the second pressing

all doors were open

‘oh, everywhere’

‘don’t let the get to it’
