Blindly we ran through the gloom, blundering against boulders, forcing our way through gorse
bushes, panting up hills and rushing down slopes, heading always in the direction whence those dreadful sounds had come.
Outside was strong sunlight with a wind; and a yellow head of some broom or gorse
in the garden rapped against the glass of the window.
In the afternoon he walked about the common; and that is gray and dingy too; it is neither country nor town; the gorse
is stunted; and all about is the litter of civilisation.
The heath was covered with golden patches of flowering gorse
, gleaming magnificently in the light of the bright spring sunshine.
He had risen to his feet and was standing with his back to the cedar-tree, looking away with fixed eyes to where the sunlight fell upon a distant hillside gorgeous with patches and streaks of yellow gorse
and purple heather.
