PART II - CHAPTER XXI

THE foreign one sings. Hour after hour songs bubble from her heart to her lips, and she is gay with a joy amazing. I, who have borne a son, rejoice with her, and in our common human experience we are knit together. We sew upon the clothes, little Chinese clothes. When she ponders upon what colours to choose she knits her brows above her smiling lips and she questions herself thus:
" Now if his eyes are black he will need this scarlet, but if his eyes are grey he must have rosepink. Will his eyes be black or grey, little sister?" She turns her laughing eyes to me.
Then I, smiling back, inquire:
" What colour are they already in your heart?"
And she says, flushing and suddenly shy before me :
" They are black, always; let us take the scarlet."
" Scarlet is the colour of joy," I tell her, "and it always is suitable for a son."
Together we know that we have chosen wisely.
