insisted, no mobility in his face, no movement, nothing about him that 

warmed. If Ann Veronica could have put words to that song they 

would have been, "Hot-blooded marriage or none!" but she was far too 

indistinct in this matter to frame any words at all. 

 

"I don't love him," said Ann Veronica, getting a gleam. "I don't see 

that his being a good sort matters. That really settles about that.... 

But it means no end of a row." 

 

For a time she sat on a rail before leaving the road for the downland 

turf. "But I wish," she said, "I had some idea what I was really up to." 

 

Her thoughts went into solution for a time, while she listened to a lark 

singing. 

 

"Marriage and mothering," said Ann Veronica, with her mind crystallizing 

out again as the lark dropped to the nest in the turf. "And all the rest 

of it perhaps is a song."
