" 'Do you like poetry?' asked Elfine, suddenly. A pure flood of colour ran up under her skin. Her hands, burnt and bone-modelled as a boy's, were clenched.

" 'Some of it," replied Flora cautiously.

" 'I adore it," said Elfine, simply. 'It says all the things I can't say for myself...somehow...it means...oh, I don't know. Just everything, somehow. It's enough. Do you ever feel that?'

"Flora replied that she had, occasionally, felt something of the sort, but her reply was limited by the fact that she was not quite sure exactly what Elfine meant."
