Alden Weir, New England barnyard, J. He hustled the collar on to her neck with a jerk. He ran his words together, and his speech was almost as inarticulate as a growl.
But the woman understood; it was her most native tongue. Then she stood waiting. She was a small woman, short and straight-waisted like a child in her brown cotton gown. Her forehead was mild and benevolent between the smooth curves of gray hair; there were meek downward lines about her nose and mouth; but her eyes, fixed upon the old man, looked as if the meekness had been the result of her own will, never of the will of another.
They were in the barn, standing before the wide open doors. The spring air, full of the smell of growing grass and unseen blossoms, came in their faces. The deep yard in front was littered with farm wagons and piles of wood; on the edges, close to the fence and the house, the grass was a vivid green, and there were some dandelions.
The old man glanced doggedly at his wife as he tightened the last buckles on the harness. She looked as immovable to him as one of the rocks in his pastureland, bound to the earth with generations of blackberry vines.
He slapped the reins over the horse, and started forth from the barn. The old man pulled up. He hurried the horse into the farm wagon, and clattered out of the yard, jouncing as sturdily on his seat as a boy.
The woman stood a moment looking after him, then she went out of the barn across a corner of the yard to the house. The house, standing at right angles with the great barn and a long reach of sheds and out-buildings, was infinitesimal compared with them.
It was scarcely as commodious for people as the little boxes under the barn eaves were for doves. She was watching three men who were digging over in the field which bounded the yard near the road line.
She turned quietly when the woman entered. He combed slowly and painstakingly, arranging his brown hair in a smooth hillock over his forehead.
He did not seem to pay any attention to the conversation. The boy combed assiduously. She turned again to the window, and stared out at the digging men in the field. Her tender sweet face was full of a gentle distress. She was quite large, but her soft curves did not look as if they covered muscles.
Her mother looked sternly at the boy. The boy did not reply; he was tying his shoes. She went into the pantry, and there was a clatter of dishes. The boy got his cap from a nail behind the door, took an old arithmetic from the shelf, and started for school.
He was lightly built, but clumsy. He went out of the yard with a curious spring in the hips, that made his loose homemade jacket tilt up in the rear. The girl went to the sink, and began to wash the dishes that were piled up there. Her mother came promptly out of the pantry, and shoved her aside.
Her delicate face flushed pink, her lips pouted softly, as if she were going to cry. Father kept it shingled right up. She scrubbed the outside of it as faithfully as the inside.
She was a masterly keeper of her box of a house. Her one livingroom never seemed to have in it any of the dust which the friction of life with inanimate matter produces. She swept, and there seemed to be no dirt to go before the broom; she cleaned, and one could see no difference.
She was like an artist so perfect that he has apparently no art. To-day she got out a mixing bowl and a board, and rolled some pies, and there was no more flour upon her than upon her daughter who was doing finer work.
Nanny was to be married in the fall, and she was sewing on some white cambric and embroidery. She sewed industriously while her mother cooked, her soft milk-white hands and wrists showed whiter than her delicate work.[AAA] Atlas of Ancient Archaeology, Jacquetta Hawkes (ed), Barnes and Nobles: [AAF] Answering a Fundamentalist, Albert J.
