CHAPTER XXVII - Here!

at Kate, and put out a pink tongue at her. She laughed aloud. It stood wondering, dazed. Then it put out its tongue again. She laughed at it. It gave an awkward little skip, which surprised its own self very much. Then it ventured forward again, and all unexpectedly even to itself, exploded into another little skip.
`Already it dances!' cried Kate. `And it came into the world only last night.'
`Yes, already it dances!' reiterated the peon.
After bethinking itself for a time, the ass-foal walked uncertainly towards the mother. She was a well-liking grey-andbrown she-ass, rather glossy and self-assured. The ass-foal straight found the udder, and was drinking.
Glancing up, Kate met again the peon's eyes, with their black, full flame of life heavy with knowledge and with a curious reassurance. The black foal, the mother, the drinking, the new life, the mystery of the shadowy battlefield of creation; and the adoration of the full-breasted, glorious woman beyond him: all this seemed in the primitive black eyes of the man.
`Adios!' said Kate to him, lingeringly.
'Adios, Patrona!' he replied, suddenly lifting his hand high, in the Quetzalcoatl salute.
She walked across the beach to the jetty, feeling the life surging vivid and resistant within her. `It is sex,' she said to herself. `How wonderful sex can be, when men keep it powerful and sacred, and it fills the world! Like sunshine through and through one! - But I'm not going to submit, even there. Why should one give in, to anything!'
Ramon was coming down towards the boat, the blue symbol of Quetzalcoatl in his hat. And at that moment the drums began to sound for mid-day, and there came the mid-day call, clear and distinct, from the tower. All the men on the shore stood erect, and shot up their right hands to the sky. The women spread both palms to the light. Everything was motionless, save the moving animals.
Then Ramon went on to the boat, the men saluting him with the Quetzalcoatl salute as he came near.
`It is wonderful, really,' said Kate, as they rowed over the water, `how - how splendid one can feel in this country! As if one were still genuinely of the nobility.'
