They remained still, in the centre of light, with the lamp uplifted; the red and black scarf wrapped loosely round his neck gave him a luxurious, generous look. He lowered the lamp and said, affecting to speak naturally:
'Yes-there is plenty this year.'
`You will give me some,' she replied, turning away and finally breaking the spell.
'When shall I cut it?'-He strode beside her, swinging
