Saint's Progress

Pierson went close to her; his face was quivering.
`Don't let us differ on this last night; I must go up to Nollie for a minute, and then to bed. I shan't see you to-morrow; you mustn't get up; I can bear parting better like this. And my train goes at eight. God bless you, Gracie; give George my love. I know, I have always known that he's a good man, though we do fight so. Goodbye, my darling.'
He went out with his cheeks wet from Gratian's tears, and stood in the porch a minute to recover his composure. The shadow of the house stretched velvet and blunt over the rock-garden. A nightjar was spinning; the churring sound affected him oddly. The last English night-bird he would hear. Englandl What a night-to say good-bye! `My country!' he thought; `my beautiful country!' The dew was lying thick and silvery already on the little patch of grass-the last dew, the last scent of an English night. The call of a bugle floated out. `England!' he prayed; `God be about you!' A little sound answered from across the grass, like an old man's cough, and the scrape and rattle of a chain. A face emerged at the edge of the house's shadow; bearded and horned like that of Pan, it seemed to stare at him. And he saw the dim grey form of the garden goat, heard it scuttle round the stake to which it was tethered, as though alarmed at this visitor to its domain.
He went up the half-flight of stairs to Noel's narrow little room, next the nursery. No voice answered his tap. It was dark, but he could see her at the window, leaning far out, with her chin on her hands.
`Nollie !'
She answered without turning: `Such a lovely night, Daddy. Come and look! I'd like to set the goat free, only he'd eat the rock-plants. But it is his night, isn't it? He ought to be running and skipping in it. It's such a shame to tie things up. Did you never feel wild in your heart, Daddy?'
