Per dies festi quattuor hominum multi sescenti Glastonburghem frequentabant. Fabula prima erat cantrix Americana Dollia Parton quae braces candidas gemmis celatas gestans de luto carmen novum cantavit. ‘quod agricolae filia sum’ inquit ‘de luto omnia cognosco.’ In proscaenio pyramido unam horam cantabat, carmina notissima recitans sicut ‘Laborans oram secundam ad decimam’. Quamquam pauci cantricem insecuti sunt ut hypocritam, multitudo maxime Dolliam amabat, praecipue filia mea quae aderat Veritas nomine.

Many thousands of people thronged Glastonbury for the four day festival. The headline act was the Ameican singer Dolly Parton who whilst wearing a white trouser suit embroidered with diamonte sang a new song about mud. “I know all about mud” she said, “because I am th daughter of a farmer.” She sang on the pyramid stage for an hour, going through her most famous songs, including “Working nine to five.” Although a few people criticised the singer for miming, the crowd loved Dolly, especially my daughter Verity who was there.
