My Mother’s Yellow Dress

The perfect dress.                           My mother’s dress.                                    I envy the dress.

            Pretty yellow dress.      I.   Pretty.   Mother.         My mother hanging the dress.

My mother.                                                      Hanging.                                          Dress.

                        My mother hanging in the dress.   I.   Envy.                     I envy hanging.

I envy hanging the dress.                                                               I envy hanging in the dress.

                                       I envy hanging my mother in the dress.

I envy my mother.         I.   The.   I.   Perfect.   Hanging.   Yellow.   Yellow dress.         Yes.
