CHAPTER EIGHT

time here, and only a little of that with Sylvia. She would grow old and be Sylvia no longer; then she would die; and then for ten million years he would commune with her spirit. No, not What could life beyond the grave be without a Sylvia to see, to touch, to hold in the arms? Ah, but beauty must die. Underneath this stone - how did it go? Underneath this stone doth lie As much Beauty as must die. Oh well, I shall have had my day.
In the silence Sylvia caught Alice's eye and carried it across the room to Hildersham's glass.
`Thanks,' said Hildersham, putting up a finger. `Thanks. Quite so, I see your point, of course. But surely if we've only got such a short time, it's our first duty to see that we don't lose any of it.'
On the silver-grey table in the silver-grey panelled room in blue glass candle-sticks blue candles stood, waiting to be lit, but as yet unlighted; for the golden sun, now fallen suddenly below the line of the hill, had felt that incredible aftermath of beauty behind it, when it is as if each flower had snatched at its last moment of life, to conspire in one glowing intensity of colour. Then, as it were in a breath, the glory will be gone. As much Beauty as must die.
`I see what you mean,' said Sylvia, since Reginald was still staring through the opened windows.
Hildersham, turning himself over in his mind, realized that he was becoming unanswerable.
`In other words,' he said, clinching the matter, `our first duty is to preserve that life both for ourselves and others.'
Grace agreed. Grace always liked the way Sylvia did her fish. She made a note in her mind to ask her about it again ... to send on Jimmy's wicket-keeping gloves ... and to take round those flannels to old Mrs. Heathcote.
