I learned later that this door had been blocked for ten years.

The dance came to an abrupt end. The guests, unwilling to go as yet, stunned, distressed, stood clumsily about, their eyes vague, their hands swinging at their sides,

The fourth excerpt represents the element of Earth. It speaks of physical influences and the impact of the unseen on the visible world, and is drawn from Rezanov by Gertrude Atherton:

But Concha detected that second break in his voice, and turned her head sadly.

"You would not say that to-morrow. I hate my- self that I made you say it now. I love you enough to wait forever, but I have not the courage to hand you over to your enemies."
