As she sat there this day before The Sheik's goatskin tent, fashioning
a skirt of grasses for Geeka, The Sheik appeared suddenly approaching.
Perhaps there had been a touch of genius or the finger of good fortune in the fashioning
of her lines at bow and stern.
That had never happened yet; and now her imagination, instead of retracing the past, was busy fashioning
what would happen to- morrow--whereabout in the Chase she should see him coming towards her, how she should put her new rose-coloured ribbon on, which he had never seen, and what he would say to her to make her return his glance--a glance which she would be living through in her memory, over and over again, all the rest of the day.
The stream in struggling onward turns the mill-wheel; the coral insect, fashioning
its tiny cell, joins continents to one another; and the ambitious man, building a pedestal for himself, leaves a monument to posterity.
When several pressed me too closely, there before the carved gateway of Kaol, I leaped above their heads, and fashioning
my tactics after those of the hideous plant men of Dor, struck down upon my enemies' heads as I passed above them.
