Twinkul, twinkul litul star Ue are oeld, Fardhur Wilyum
Twinkul, twinkul, litul star, How Ie wundur wot ue ar! Up abuv dhu wurld soe hie, Like a diemund in dhu skie. Wen the blaezing sun iz gon, Wen hee nuthing shienz upon, Dhen ue shoe yor litul liet, Twinkul, twinkul, thru dhu niet. Dhen dhu travulur in dhu dark Thanks ue for yor tienee spark; Hee kud not see wer too goe, If ue did not twinkul soe. In dhu dark bloo skie ue keep, And oftun throo mie kurtunz peep, For ue nevur shut yor ie Til dhu sun iz in dhu skie. Az yor briet and tienee spark Liets dhu travlur in dhu dark, Dhoe Ie noe not wot ue ar, Twinkul, twinkul, litul star. ‘Ue ar oeld, Fardhur Wilyum,’ dhu yung man sed, ‘And yor her haz beekum veree wiet; And yet ue insesuntlee stand on yor hed – Doo ue think, at yor aej, it iz riet?’ ‘In mie yooth,’ Farhur Wilyum replied too hiz sun. ‘Ie feeyurd it miet injur dhu braen; But, now dhat Ie’m puurfuktlee shoor Ie hav nun, Wie, Ie doo it agen and agen.’ ‘Ue ar oeld,’ sed dhu yooth, ‘az Ie menshund beefor, And hav groen moest unkomunlee fat; Yet ue tuurnd a bak-sumursolt in at dhu dor – Prae, wot iz dhu reezun ov dhat?’ ‘In mie yooth,’ sed dhu saej, az hee shuk hiz grae loks, Ie kept oal mie limz veree supul Bie dhu ues ov dhis ointmunt – wun shiling dhu boks – alow mee too sel ue a cupul?’ ‘Ue ar oeld,’ sed dhu yooth, ‘and yor jorz are too week For eneething tufur dhan soowit; Yet ue finishd dhu goos, widh dhu boenz and dhu beek – prae how did ue manij too doo it?’ ‘In mie yooth,’ sed hiz fardhur, ‘Ie tuk too dhu lor. And argued eeq kaes widh mie wief; And dhu muskuelur strength, wiq it gaev too mie jor, Haz lastid dhu rest ov mie lief.’ ‘Ue are oeld,’ sed dhu yooth, ‘wun wuod hardlee supoez Dhat yor ie iz az stedee az evur; yet ue balansd an eel on dhu end ov yor noez – wot maed ue soe orfulee klevur?’ ‘Ie hav ansurd three kwestqunz, and dhat iz enuf,’ Sed hiz fardhur; ‘doen’t giv yorself erz! Doo ue think Ie kan lisun oal dae too suq stuf? Bee of, or Ie’ll kik ue downsterz!’
From Alis'iz Adventqurs in Wundurlund bie Loowis Karul And soe dhu see iz soltee bie Daevid Broedee Mirandu seez peepul, and sumtiemz dhae see hur, but dhae stae awae. Dhae doen’t liek hur. Shee’z straenj, difrunt, eevun thoe shee haz long waevee her and slendur armz. Shee kan swim – oe, how shee kan swim – shee haz a tael widh strong finz, wer peepul hav legz. Wen dher ar noe peepul arownd, uezhuewulee at niet, shee sits on dhu roks. Dhen dher iz oenlee dhu sownd ov dhu waevz. Shee lets dhem splash oevur hur, and shee iz kumfutubul – harf in wortur, harf on dhu hard stoen. In bitween too wurldz. Undur dhu see, along dhu beeqiz and klifs, and up in the slieding klowdz dhat riez up wun aftur anodhur from dhu far horiezun, shee seez byootee dhat’s too big, too riq, too undurstand. Ther are soe menee kreetqurs – big sloe fish, darting smoal wunz, thowzundz and thowzundz ov soft lievz in hard shelz, and wurmz dhat rigul bitween sand and wortur. In dhu see, on dhu sand, and in thu rokpoolz, shee fiendz thingz dhat peepul throe awae. Shee fiendz plastik flowurs too entwien widh hur her. Shee fiendz harf-broekun boksiz. shee ueziz dhem. hidun in a caev wer noe peepul kan goe, too keep dhu thingz shee fiendz. Dhae ar hur trezhur boksiz. Az far az shee noez, in oal dhu graet oshunz ov dhu wurld, shee iz dhee oenlee wun ov hur kiend. Shee duzn’t hav too foloe roolz maed bie fish, nor dolfinz nor peepul. Shee just haz too bee hurself. Hur ueneek self. Alas, in oal dhu freedum and dhu byootee and dhu graet wundurz, ther iz sumthing mising. Shee swimz fast widh dhu dolfinz. Shee noez ther tork and ther plae. Shee rieziz widh dhem from dhu waevz intoo dhee er and krashiz bak intoo dhu depths agen. But shee iz not a dolfin. Ther iz an emptinus. Shee noez nuthing ov luv. Shee just needz odhurz. Odhurz liek hur, living on dhee ej ov too wurldz, belonging too niedhur ov dhem. Sumtiemz, siting on dhu roks in dhu krashing waevz, dhu sadnus ov beeying, and espshulee ov beeying aloen, oevurwelmz hur. Shee kriez. And soe dhu see iz soltee.
Dhe dezeedurartu bie Maks Ermun Goe plasidlee amid dhu noiz and dhu haest, and reemembur wot pees ther mae bee in sieluns. Az far az posubul, widhowt surendur, bee on gud turmz widh oal pursunz. Speek yor trooth kwieyutlee and kleeyurlee, and lisun too udhurz, eevun too dhu dul and ignurunt; dhae too hav ther storee. Avoid lowd and agresiv pursunz; dhae ar vekzashus too dhu spirit. If ue comper yorself widh odhurz, ue mae beecum vaen or bitur, for alwaez dher wil bee graetur and lesur pursunz dhan yorself. Enjoi yor aqeevmunts az wel az yor planz. Keep inturestid in yor oen kareeyur, howevur humbul; it iz a reel pozeshun in dhu qaenjing fortqoonz ov tiem. Eksursiez korshun in yor biznusz aferz, for dhu world iz ful ov trikuree. But let dhis not bliend ue tu wot vurtqoo ther iz; menee pursunz striev for hie iedeels, and evureewer lief iz ful ov heroewizm. Bee yorself. Espeshulee, doo not faen afekshun. niedhur bee sinikul abowt luv; for in dhu faes ov oal ariditee and disenqantmunt it iz az pereneeyul az dhu gras. Taek kiendlee dhu cownsul ov dhu yurz, graesfulee surendering dhu thingz ov yooth. Nurtqur strength ov spirit too sheeld ue in sudun misfortqoon. But doo not distres yorself widh dark imajiningz. Menee feeyurz ar born ov fateeg and loenleenus. Beeyond a hoelsum disiplin, bee jentul widh yorself. Ue ar a qield ov dhu uenivurs noe les dhan dhu treez and dhu starz; ue hava riet too bee heer. Widh oal its sham, drujeree and broekun dreemz, it iz stil a byootiful wurld. Bee qeerful. Striev too bee hapee.
