Fifteen False Propositions Against God - Section XIV


If the diamond ring turns brass

going on a picnic together when they were all students at the
University of Pennsylvania
Now they are all over seventy and the absent baby
Is a mirror sheltering their image.

But harder grows the more I her entreat?
