In a dark corner of the Daily Cal office, a copy editor is dreaming:

Due knot sensor the fare blewbirds! Seed them sum songs even if they teas, Let them steak there claim! They’re sweet coral serenade philz the heir … with gentel size that echo in the would. Watch them: ark and sore across the sky! the suite quire Of nature, pretty as a Rows in the mourning lite, mussed not bee silenced. Wee knead them moor then they need us Hour ownly chants of joy inn a baron, debaste world—the cites and soundss of the blewbird quire. Owe! Wut beauty! Saver it while yoo can,

I wish ide staid when you axed me two. Instead eye went my own weigh. Knight after nite the pail moon shines thru my window as i toss and tern, full of regret, remembering hour daze together. Ate months iz a long absents, won never nose the write path at the thyme. The Wizdom of hindsite ownly brings moar pane.
