The pewit hollos 'chewrit' as she flies

And flops about the shepherd where he lies;

For what reason completes a breeze become wind that influences the place of little creepy crawly? Who knows? Maybe a foul play.But it is God's leniency that makes life come to follow.Congrats regarded poetess Indira Renganatham for your ballad being chosen as the Poem of the Day! http: //www.4cashpath.com/
