Elspeth, 3rd grade, left this in
her mother’s typewriter, I
don’t think purposely to be
read. (She often monkeyed
about on my machine.) The
grammar is deliberate for she
spoke correctly. I see this as
a youngest-child heartfelt
expression. It’s as she typed
it except for two lines broken
to fit my space. JJ

a big wind blow;
a small wind blow too.
big, small, both blow.
Free.
No one tell wind when to blow
Big wind don’t tell smaller wind
when to blow;
Smaller wind don’t tell smallest wind
when to blow.
Every wind blow when it want to.
