Excerpt from A Winnowing

Then again it was the close of a summer after noon he was going out riding with his father - dead, too, years ago; and he stood, radiantly happy, listening to the champ and jingle of horses coming round from the stable. On the lawn, just out of sight, stood the tea-table, silver, china, in the shade of the lime, with his mother and sister - the one who had died when he was ten years old - talking together there. From somewhere beyond the village came the crash of a band there was some fete - a ower show, he thought - in progress. His father came out and stood beside him, silent and smiling; but his face was altered, and it was plain he was a revenant, yet not terrible, only a little strange and mysterious his head was lifted and his eyes looked out, seeing that which the boy could not see. It seemed as though he had returned from some long journey, and all was well again.

Or it was winter, as it was growing dark, and he was coming in through the park towards the garden. The great house, sombre against the aming west.
