stopped and looked at Diard, who stood in the doorway with his hands
in his pockets; overcome, perhaps, by finding himself in this calm
scene, so softly lighted, so beautiful with the faces of his wife and
children. It was a living picture of the Virgin between her son and
"Juana, I have something to say to you."
"What has happened?" she asked, instantly perceiving from the livid
paleness of her husband that the misfortune she had daily expected was
"Oh, nothing; but I want to speak to you--to you, alone."
|The second excerpt represents the present or the deciding factor of the moment, and is drawn from The Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allan Poe:
Radiant palace--reared its head.
In the monarch Thought's dominion--
It stood there!
Never seraph spread a pinion
Over fabric half so fair.
Banners yellow, glorious, golden,
On its roof did float and flow;
(This--all this--was in the olden
Time long ago)
And every gentle air that dallied,
The Fall of the House of Usher

well, and wants nothing i' the world; but yet she is not well.

Truly, she's very well indeed, but for two things.
What two things?
One, that she's not in heaven, whither God send her quickly!
The other, that she's in earth, from whence God send her quickly!
