Excerpt from The Rose Child
I shall not be home to-night, but you will find something to eat.
But the cupboard was always empty. It was well that here and there a child at school gave rose-resli apples or pears, or even a slice of bread, and often when she had to go hungry, she could run freely to the gardens round about Where the roses grew, and gather a few, and in this pleasure she would forget everything else.
