Write down your homework: Vocabulary Word #1 – from today’s poem
A lantern light from deeper in the barnShone on a man and woman in the doorAnd threw their lurching shadows on a houseNear by, all dark in every glossy window.A horse's hoof pawed once the hollow floor,And the back of the gig they stood besideMoved in a little. The man grasped a wheel,The woman spoke out sharply, 'Whoa, stand still!''I saw it just as plain as a white plate,'She said, 'as the light on the dashboard ranAlong the bushes at the roadside-a man's face.You must have seen it too.'
'Joel, I'll have to look. I can't go in,I can't, and leave a thing like that unsettled.Doors locked and curtains drawn will make no difference.I always have felt strange when we came homeTo the dark house after so long an absence,And the key rattled loudly into placeSeemed to warn someone to be getting outAt one door as we entered at another.What if I'm right, and someone all the time-
'You speak as if this were a travelled road.You forget where we are. What is beyondThat he'd be going to or coming fromAt such an hour of night, and on foot too.What was he standing still for in the bushes?'
'You mean you couldn't understand his caring.Oh, but you see he hadn't had enough-Joel, I won't-I won't-I promise you.We mustn't say hard things. You mustn't either.'
He appeared to forget to keep his hold,But advanced with her as she crossed the grass.
She reached a hand to Joel for support:The smell of scorching woollen made her faint.'What are you doing round this house at night?'
Yes, do.-Joel, go back!'She stood her ground against the noisy stepsThat came on, but her body rocked a little.
