Excerpt from In Our Town To country lanes, and nothing but dewy verdure, Where the corn-crakes could be heard, and soft patches of woodland lying between it and the sunset on its western side, and far to the north the grey arm of the sea, dotted with islands and with sails. N OW the back windows look on to lanes still, but they are stable-lanes; and the sun sets over chimneys, and is blurred and smoky; and one's neighbours' underlinen flaps in unblushing effrontery in every back garden on the earlier days of the week; and on Saturday nights the monotonous sound Of the beating of carpets rises from the stable haunts and defies interference.
