1. Robin knew every path (DO) and secret way (DO) {in all the woods}. |
 
2. I'll buy it (DO) all and your pony (DO) too. |

3. Yet Richard himself [App] was neither meek (PA) nor gentle (PA). |

4. Now [#1] Duke William had not a great deal (DO) [#2] {of money} nor many

lands (DO) {of his own}. |

5. The Lady Christabel's face was no longer pale (PA), but dainty [#3] pink (PA) {like 

the inside} {of a shell}. |

6. He lost his home (DO), and everything (DO) [Adj. to "everything" that he had]. |


Notes
1. This "now" can be explained either as an adverb or as an interjection.
2. Note how the phrase "a great deal of" can be considered an adjective here ("much money"), thereby making "money" the direct object.
3. Almost every grammar book (including KISS) claims that adjectives are modified by adverbs, but here we have an exception, probably because "pink" is also a noun.
