DROMENON

long lain on and in the ground plan. My start, disproportionate in any case, was double when the voice I was already expecting with an irrational tension, spoke at my shoulder not a command, but a question.
" It is a puzzle, isn't it?"
The voice, too, was not a verger's. I was startled, but my chief surprise was at myself-I felt strangely irritated. (I see now, that I should have understood what underlay this irritation, unprovoked, and, I think I may also say, uncharacteristic: irritation in the nonirritable is almost always a sympton of an unconscious malaise.) I tried to conceal my discomposure by the simple but crude device of refusing to lower my glasses. Then, as the best nonoffensive defense that I could muster, I replied, "The pattern qua pattern is clear enough."
I hoped the questioner might only be walking by, on his way out. If so, he could be merely a talkative casual who felt he must say something apposite to anyone he passed. My tone was deliberately flat, for I hoped he would take it to confirm my stance and construe both rightly: that I had no need for a gossip or a guide. "That's the puzzle" showed, however, that I had been mistaken; he had taken my attempt to disengage as a query-invitation. I still remained steadily gazing up at the patterned trefoiling. It should have discouraged him, but actually the effect proved contrary.
" One can have no doubt," went on the voice at my left shoulder, "that there is an unmistakable design up there. The actual way to follow it is the difficulty. Of that final trefoil, the topmost aperture contains, you see, some enwrought pattern in medallion pot metal."
