Drawing little animals in people winter clothing is very relaxing for me.
- Old English (Anglo-Saxon): Eft he axode, hu ðære ðeode nama ƿære þe hi of comon. Him ƿæs ȝeandƿyrd, þæt hi Anȝle ȝenemnode ƿæron. Þa cƿæð he, "Rihtlice hi sind Anȝle ȝehatene, for ðan ðe hi enȝla ƿlite habbað, and sƿilcum ȝedafenað þæt hi on heofonum enȝla ȝeferan beon."
- Middle English: In þat lond ben trees þat beren wolle, as þoȝ it were of scheep; whereof men maken clothes, and all þinȝ þat may ben made of wolle. In þat contree ben many ipotaynes, þat dwellen som tyme in the water, and somtyme on the lond: and þei ben half man and half hors, as I haue seyd before; and þei eten men, whan þei may take hem.
- Early Modern English: But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief, That thou her maid art far more fair than she Be not her maid, since she is envious; Her vestal livery is but sick and green And none but fools do wear it; cast it off. It is my lady, O, it is my love!
- Modern English: Moving forward using all my breath. Making love to you was never second best. I saw the world crashing all around your face, never really knowing it was always mesh and lace. I'll stop the world and melt with you. You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time. There's nothing you and I won't do. I'll stop the world and melt with you.
