Lowly,º longlyº a wail went forth. Pure Yawn lay low. On the mead of the hillockº lay, |shheartsoul dormant mid shadowed landshape,ºsh| brief wallet to his side, andº arm loose,º by his staff of citron briar, tradition stick-pass-on. His dream monologue was over, of cause, but his drama parapolylogic had yet to be, affact. Most distressfully (but, my dear, how successfully!) to wail he did, his locks of a lucan tinge, quickrich, ripely rippling, unfilleted, those lashbetasselled lids on the verge of closing time, whiles ouze of his sidewiseopen mouth the breath of him,º evenso languishing as the princeliest treble treacle or lichee chewchow purse could buy. Yawn in a semiswoon lay awailing and (hooh!) what helpings of honeyfulº swoothead (phew!),º which earpiercing dulcitude! As were you suppose to go and push with your bluntblank pin in hand upinto hisº fleshasplush cushionettes of some chubby boyboldº love of an angel. Hwoah!
When,º as the buzzer brings the light brigade, keeping the home fires burning, so on the churring call
themselves came at him, from the |shwestborders of thesh| eastmidlands, three kings of three suits
and a crowner, from all their cardinal parts, along the amber wayº where Brosna's furzy. To lifº
them they did, senators four, byº the first quaint skreek of the gloamingº and they hopped it
up the mountainy molehill, traversing climes of old times gone byº of the days not worth remembering;º inventing some excusethems, any sort,
having a sevenply
sweat of night bluesº moistº upon them. Feefee!º phopho!! foorchtha!!! aggala!!!! jeeshee!!!!! paloola!!!!!! ooridiminy!!!!!!! Afearedº themselves were to wonder atº the class of a crossroads puzzler he would likely be, length by breadth nonplussing his thickness, ells upon ells of him, making so many square yards of him, one half of him in Conn's half but the whole of him nevertheless in Owenmore's five quarters. There would he lay till they would him descry,º spancelled down upon a blossomy bed,º at one fouleº stretch,º amongst the daffydowndillies, the flowers of narcosis fourfettering his footlights, a halohedge of wild spuds hovering over him, epicures waltzing with gardenfillers, puritan shoots advancing to Aran chiefs. Phopho!! The meteor pulpº of him, the seamless rainbowpeel.º Aggala!!!! His bellyvoid of nebulose with his neverstop navel.º Paloola!!!!!! And his veins shooting melanite phosphor, his creamtocustardº cometshair and his asteroid knuckles, ribs and members.º Ooridiminy!!!!!!!º His electrolatiginous twisted entrails belt.º
Those four claymen clomb together to hold their sworn starchamber quiry on him. For he was ever their quarrel, the way they would see
themselves,º everybug his bodiment atop of annywom her notion, and the meet of their noghtº was worth two of his morning. Up to the esker
ridge it was, Mallingerº parish,º to a mead that was not far, the
son's rest. First klettered Shanator Gregory,º seeking spoor through the deep timefield,º Shanator
Lyons,º trailing the wavy line of his partitionº
footsteps (something in his blisters was telling him all along how he had been in that place one time),º then hisº
Recordershipº, Dr Shunadure Tarpey, caperchasing after honourable sleep, hot on to the
aniseedº and, up out of his prompt corner, old Shunny MacShunny,º MacDougalº the
hiker,º in the rere of them on the run,º to make a quorum. Roping their ass he was, their skygrey
globetrotter, by way of an afterthoughtº and |shby no means
leglesssh| either for such sprouts on him they were that much oneven it was tumbling he wasº by four lengths,
within the bawl of a mascot, kuss yuss, kuss cley, patsy watsy, like the kapr in the kabisses, the big ass, to hear with his unaided ears the harp in
the air, the bugle
dianablowing, wild as wild, the mockingbird whose word is misfortune, so 'tis said, the bulbul down the wind.
The proto was traipsing through the tangle then, Mathew Walker, godsons' goddestfar, deputising for gossipocracy, and his station was a few perch to the weatherside of the knoll Asnoch and it was from no other place unless there, howº and ever,º that he proxtended aloof upon the ether Mesmer's Manuum, the hand making silence. The buckos beyond on the lea,º then stopped wheresoever they found their standings and that way they set ward about him, |shdoing obediencesh|, nod, bend,º bow and curtsey, like |shthe watchers of Prospectsh|, upholding their broadawake prober'sº hats on their firrum heads|sh, the travelling court on its findings circuiting that personer in his fallensh|. And a crack quatyouare of stenoggers they made of themselves, solons and psychomorersº, all told, with their hurts and daimons, spites and clops, not even to the seclusion of their beast by them that was the oddº trick of the pack, trump and no friend of carrots. And, whatº do you think,º who should be laying there above all other personsº forenenst them only Yawn! All of asprawl he was laying too amengst the poppies and, I can tell you something more than that, drear writer, profoundly as you may bedeave to it, he was oscasleep asleep. And it was far more similar to a satrap he lay there with unctuous beautyº all surrounded,º |shthe poser,sh| or for whatall I know likeº Lord Lumen,º coaching his preferred constellations in faith and doctrine,º for old Matt Gregory,º 'tis he had the starmenagerie,º Marcus Lyons and Lucas Metcalfe Tarpey and the mack that never forgave the ass that lurked behind him, Jonnyº na Hossaleen.
More than their good share of their five senses ensorcelled you would say themselves were, fumingº censor, the way they could not rightly tell their heels from their
stoolsº as they cooched down a mamalujo by his cubical crib, as question time drew nighing and
the map of the souls' groupography rose in relief within their quarterings, toº play tops or kites or hoops or marbles,
curchycurchy,º gawking on him,º for the issuance of his pnum and softnoising one of them to another one, the boguaqueesthers.
And it is what they began to say to him |shtetrahedrallysh| then, the masters, what way was he.
— Yerra, why dat, my leader?
— Or his wind's from the wrong cut, says Ned of the Hill.
— Why so and speak up, do you hear me, youº sir?
— Or he's rehearsing somewan's funeral.
— Whisht outathat! Hubba's up!

Forº it was in the back of their mind's ear, temptive lissomer, how they would be spreading in quadriliberal their azurespotted fine attractable nets, their nansen nets,º from Matt Senior to the thurrible mystagogue after him and from thence to the neighbour and that way to the puisny donkeyman and his crucifer's cauda. And in their minds years backslibris,º so it was, slipping beauty, how they would be meshing that way, when he rose to it, with the planckton at play about him,º the quiversº of scaly silver and their clutches of chromes of the highly lucid spanishing goldº whilst, as hour gave way to mazing hour, with Yawn himself keeping time with his thripthongue,º to ope his blurbeous lips he would,º aº let out classy,º the way myrrh of the moor and molten moonmist would be melding mellifond indo his mouth.
