Me Wandered Solitairement Like Cloud

Poetry in Translation uses Google to translate English into German, then German into French, then French back into English.
Here are a few lines I put in, with translations of translations of translations:
“A rose is a rose is a rose” becomes
“The pink is a pink is increased”
“Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly” becomes
“Some share on the elbow of rain to steal bluebirds”
I wandered lonely as a cloud” becomes
“Me wandered solitairement like cloud”
“How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood” becomes
“How much wood, became a collar of marble animal of forest, if a marble animal of forest could fix wood”
and
“My dog ate my homework” becomes
“My dog ate my domestic industry”

Winter Wabbits

This year, I’ve covered the rabbits’ double-decker run/hutch in fashionable foil bubblewrap, with optional red immersion heater covers. It’s very important to wrap up outdoor rabbits in the winter. On extremely cold nights, some people put their bunnies in a shed or porch or in an unheated room in the house. Mo and Flo have decided to sit outside this morning, making themselves into fluffy balls to fend off the cold.
