"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    The evil clown covered his face with lipstick while he searched for the magic coin.

    The lipstick was so expensive, she decided the company was evil as she rummaged through her handbag looking for another coin.

    The evil woman smeared lipstick all over the coin.

    That evil woman said: "I wont give you a coin for that red lipstick. "

    The price of the lipstick was positively evil and cost more than the few coins she had left after doing all her other shopping.

    The lipstick was an evil colour - a deep purple, but the coins he had spent were well worth the effect it had on his mother!

    The coins earned by evil means were well-spent on the lipstick he bought for his girlfriend.

    Once upon a time, there was this girl who wanted a lipstick. Her mother said lipsticks were evil, but even so, she wanted one. She went to the store and tried to buy one, but it costed 3 golden coins.

    In order to get the 3 golden coins the girl started to think how people earned money and observed everyone around her.

    Her first coin, she earned by taking 30 buckets of water from one place to another in the village.

    The second coin, she earned from taking care of the babies from the ladies in the village.

    The third coin... that one was the toughest one...

    @zapppsr‌ - Brilliant! A whole story! However, the real point is to try and get all three words into the same sentence; which is much harder! I still want to know what she had to do to earn that third coin though! :)

    @amatsuscribbler‌ could we have back the 'add a sentence to make a story'? Those stories were so much fun.

    ::::: - Previously in evil lipstick coin - :::::

    Girl got 2 golden coins, now she need the last one...
    =================================

    I her quest for the last coin, the girl met an old lady. The old lady immediately gave her a golden coin, for her surprise. When she was thinking it was for free the old lady said: "You can use this coin to help starving people or to help the orphans. But you might as well forget about it and buy your lipstick".

    At that very moment, the words of her mother resounded inside her head... "Lipsticks are evil... lipsticks are evil..."

    Then, she bought the lipstick.

    THE END.

    Noooo! @zapppsr‌ ! You can't end it there!!

    The evil girl should be made to eat the lipstick as a punishment for not using the coin for a better purpose.
