For breakfast I eat up my vowels, my a e i o u, to which I add from consonants a fricative or two;
After that I move my bowels then write as poets do, and frequently am quite surprised to feel a trill come through.

A little bit of Turkish: Yeni (New) Dost (Friend) Şarap (Wine) Eski (Old)

Her şeyin yenisi, dostun, şarabın eskisi.
Everything is good when new, but old friends and wine are best.

The image of Temperance above is from a 1910 pack of tarot cards produced by Pamela Colman Smith for Arthur Edward Waite. For a modern reproduction I recommend the Pamela Colman Smith Commemorative Set.
