Come to the bosky acres - there will be lots of lovely trees and the sweet smell of the air What you could see - If you went into the inner forest you could see a marmoset and crabs that don't nip. It will be wonderful because you can hear sweet airs and a thousand twangling instruments. The people - Caliban is already there - he looks fierce but really he is quite kind, so don't be scared. Miranda too is gentle and kind. Prospero's magic is wonderful and he will tell you how he does it if you are good. You could eat filberts, venison, pig nuts and acorns.
