IF: packed



and here's a famous hungarian children's poem about chestnut:

Gesztenye úrfi

Hej, gesztenye úrfi,
Bundácskádból bújj ki!
Ugorj le a fáról,
Érkezésed várom.

Nini, itt van, koppan,
Fáról földre pottyan.
Futok zsebre dugni,
Jöjj, gesztenye úrfi!

  22. Ez tök jó! Ha most rajzot tanítanék még, bevinném órára, hogy igen gyerekek, a szemhéj ugyanígy takarja be a szemgolyót! És gömfelületról van szó, nem egy lapos deszkáról!
    Köszönöm a nosztalgukis elmélkedési lehetőséget!
    Ma nem kell becsomagolódni; süt a nap! Úgyhogy akár gyűjthetnénk ennek a magányos gesztenyének barátokat! :)
