16. Sparkles and Twinkles
I saw her last night, his mother said. Don't think I didn't. She had no hair on her feet. And was she wearing any clothes? I could scarcely tell. So many sparkles and twinkles in the way. Never saw the like of it.
She was clothed in dewdrops and starshine, he said with dreamy eyes.
Oh, be off with you, she said impatiently.
I do not know, really, Mum, he said. But I would like to find out.
Listen to you! Always wanting to find out things.
At least I come by it honestly, he said with a wink.
