The ash leaves lay across the road.

January 14, 2012


[October] 20th, Monday. …When we came home the fire was out. We ate our supper in the dark, and went to bed immediately. William was disturbed in the night by the rain coming in to his room, for it was a very rainy night. The ash leaves lay across the road.”
