CHAPTER XXV- Teresa

The boat rowed on in silence.
`And Cipriano?' Teresa asked timidly.
'Ah!' said Kate shortly. `He is such a stranger to me.' Teresa was silent for some moments.
`I think a man is always a stranger to a woman,' said Teresa.
`Why should it not be so?'
`But you,' said Kate, `haven't any children.'
`Ramon has. - And he says: "I cast my bread upon the waters. It is my children too. And if they return to me after many days, I shall be glad." - Is it not the same for you?'
`Not quite!' said Kate. `I am a woman, I am not a man.'
`I, if I have children,' said Teresa, `I shall try to cast my bread upon the waters, so my children come to me that way. I hope I shall. I hope I shall not try to fish them out of life for myself, with a net. I have a very great fear of love. It is so personal. Let each bird fly with its own wings, and each fish swim its own course. - Morning brings more than love. And I want to be true to the morning.'

CHAPTER XXVI - Kate is a Wife

KATE was glad to get back to her own house, and to be more or less alone. She felt a great change was being worked in her, and if it worked too violently, she would die. It was the end of something, and the beginning of something, far, far inside her: in her soul and womb. The men, Ramon and Cipriano, caused the change, and Mexico. Because the time had come. - Nevertheless if what was happening happened too rapidly, or violently, she felt she would die. So, from time to time she had to withdraw from contact, to be alone.
She would sit alone for hours on the shore, under a green willow-tree that hung its curtains of pale-green fronds, on the beach. The lake was much fuller and higher up the shore, softer, more mysterious. There was a smell of the piles of water-hyacinth decaying at the water's edges. Distance seemed farther away. The near conical hills were dotted with 2reen
