Who Says?

Who Says?

by Elizabeth Challinor

"Pestsov interrupted in his bass voice, always in a hurry to speak and always seeming to put his whole soul into what he said"(Tolstoy).

To recognise

A trait

In the character of a 19th Century novel

As your own


In the stroke of a sentence

Whilst the prose ploughs on

To blush

Choose to pause

And exclaim


Who says a leopard can't change its spots?
