“Yesterday torrents and darkness, and today glad trees in the wind,” she replied.

“I went a long way walking,
past dogs and owners,
past children and parents,
past drinkers and beggars,
past hedges all climbed over by the grass and puddled ruts in the road,
past loafing workmen and working tramps,
brick walls like castles and slopes all shaggy with long grass.”
“Large clouds in a blue sky and on earth the feckless vegetation the hail will hammer again this afternoon, do not doubt it.”
And in this way they realized the rainy season.
