Exercise # 5

1.) The land of the south was ever bright and sunny, but all at once the sky grew

dark, and the sun hid himself in fear. Black storm-clouds came from the north. An

icy wind blew over the mountains. It wrestled with the trees of the southland, and

even the oaks could not stand against its power.
 

2.) Will you make men love me?
 

3.) "Brave little hornet," said the king of the south.
