It was small wonder, then, that he suddenly flung down his brush on the floor, said 'Bother!' and 'O blow!' and also 'Hang spring-cleaning!' and bolted out of the house without even waiting to put on his coat.

There is in it some symmetry and justice --
That, having spent my childhood
In grief, learning resignation,
I should spend my later years in joy,
Trying to learn decorum.
