1. First long dictation:
'Platero is small, hairy, soft; so soft on the outside, that one would say all cotton, that does not have bones. Only the mirrors of
The jet of his eyes are hard like two black glass beetles.
He let it loose and goes to the meadow, and warmly caresses with his snout, barely touching them, the pink, blue and yellow flowers ...
I call him sweetly: "Silversmith?"
Eat as much as I give you. He likes mandarin oranges, muscat grapes, all amber, purple figs, with their
crystalline honey droplet ...
He is tender and cuddly like a boy, a girl ...; but strong and dry inside, like stone. When I step over it
On Sundays, in the last alleys of the town, the men of the country, dressed in clean clothes and slowly, stare at him:
—Tien ’asero… It has steel. Acero y plata de luna, at the same time '(' Platero y yo'- Juan Ramón Jiménez).
2. Second long dictation:
'Look at your grace - answered Sancho - that those who look alike there are not giants, but windmills, and what in them seem like arms are the blades, which, turned from the wind, make the millstone move.

And, saying this, he spurred his horse Rocinante, ignoring the voices that his squire Sancho gave him, warning him that without a doubt they were windmills, and not giants, those that he was going to attack.

3. Third long dictation:
'I need time, I need that time that others leave behind because they have too much or they no longer know what to do with it. Time in white, in red, in green, even in dark brown.

I need time, just enough time to dabble in life for a few hours and to investigate why I am sad and to get used to my old skeleton. Time to hide in the crowing of a rooster and to reappear in a neigh and to be up to date, to be at night.
Time without modesty and without a watch. That is to say, precise or I need, let's say I need time without time ('Time without time- Mario Benedetti).
