When I've finished scribbling this in pencil to you, I shall pack, and be ready for anything. By the way, that reminds me. What a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive, etc.

But what is it ye're really meanin'?" He looked about him. "Is anybody here?" "Nobody." But instinctively he lowered his voice as he told his story.

We laugh at it, you and I. We know what it is worth." But Chris was too young to laugh. "I don't quite like it," she said. "I'm very sorry. Shall we talk of something else?"

They are not the materials of which we weave our life.

Behind the slammed door Margaret MacLean eyed the primroses suspiciously. "I wonder is your magic working all right to-day? Please please don't weave any charms against him, little faery people.

Put on thy beauty, foliage-vaulted roof, To greet her entrance, radiant all with grace; Ye branches weave a holy tent, star-proof; With lovely darkness, silent, her embrace; Sweet, wandering airs, creep through the leafy woof, And toy and gambol round her rosy face, When with its load of beauty, lightly borne, Glides in the fairy foot, and brings my morn. Hush!
