CHAPTER XXVI - Kate is a Wife

over a pale boulder. But her soul was softly alert, at once. It was a snake, with a subtle pattern along its soft dark back, lying there over a big stone, with its head sunk down to earth.
It felt her presence, too, for suddenly, with incredible soft quickness, it contracted itself down the boulder, and she saw it entering a little gap in the bottom of the wall.
The hole was not very big. And as it entered it quickly looked back, poising its little, dark, wicked, pointed head, and flickering a dark tongue. Then it passed on, slowly easing its dark length into the hole.
When it had all gone in, Kate could see the last fold still, and the flat little head resting on the fold, like the devil with his chin on his arms, looking out of a loop-hole. So the wicked sparks of the eyes looked out at her, from within the recess. Watching out of its own invisibility.
So she wondered over it, as it lay in its hidden places. At all the unseen things in the hidden places of the earth. And she wondered if it was disappointed at not being able to rise higher in creation: to be able to run on four feet, and not keep its belly on the ground.
Perhaps not! Perhaps it had its own peace. She felt a certain reconciliation between herself and it.

CHAPTER XXVII - Here!

SHE and Teresa visited one another along the lake. There was kinship and a gentleness between them, especially now Kate as going away for a while.
There was a certain autumnal purity and lull on the lake. he moisture still lingered, the bushes on the wild hills were :een in puffs. Sunlight lay in a rich gleam on the mountains, id shadows were deep and velvety. The green almost covered ie rocks and the pinkish land. Bright green the sugar cane, red the ploughed earth, dark the trees with white specks of illages here and there. And over the wild places, a sprinkle of ushes, then stark grey rock still coming out.
