They Saw A Gypsy Caravan...

They saw a Gypsy caravan, shining with newness. Painted a canary yellow, picked out with green, and red wheels.
'There you are!' cried Toad, 'There's
real life for you, embodied in a little cart, the open road, the dusty highway, the heath, the common, the hedgerows, the rolling downs!
Here today, up and off to somewhere else tomorrow!'
It was indeed very compact and comfortable. Little sleeping bunks, a little table that folded up against the wall, a cooking stove, lockers, bookshelves, a birdcage with a bird in it and pots, pans, jugs and kettles of every size
and variety.
All complete!' said Toad triumphantly...

  1. 'Oh' said Toad, 'they're all so absolutely gorgeous I want that one and that one and that one and that one and that one and that one and what about that one too'!
