This man has a business. He is playing the violin and he has a box to put the money in. He hasn’t any yet but he is hoping for some. The man is sad. We should all get together and put some money in the box. It’s in a street near the park. There are trees around and there is a crowd. It’s a summers day because they have short sleeves. The clouds are beginning to come. He has a big long bow. One man’s name is John. The lady is Jean and dad is playing the music for money. He is playing all the old folk songs and “Happy Days”. He likes red and he could be Italian. He is thinking they are going to give him one. He would hear the wind in the background. The people are enjoying walking and they would hear the trains at Lidcombe. If I see this man I’ll tell him he shouldn’t have a long stick. Make it shorter. Fancy that! Bianca feels like helping him because the box is far away. I’d like to ask him to play “Hello, hello, who’s your lady friend”. He could play “Arrivederci Roma” cause he is Italian. The story is like a big song. It has been a fruitful day because we made a lovely story. It would be even better if we had ice cream.
