Joy by John Galsworthy

Joy by John Galsworthy

ACT I The time is morning, and the scene a level lawn, beyond whichthe river is running amongst fields. A huge old beech treeovershadows everything, in the darkness of whose hollow manythings are hidden. A rustic seat encircles it. A low wallclothed in creepers, with two openings, divides this lawn fromthe flowery approaches to the house. Close to the wall there isa swing. The sky is clear and sunny. COLONEL HOPE is seated ina garden-chair, reading a newspaper through pince-nez. He isfifty-five and bald, with drooping grey moustaches and aweather-darkened face. He wears a flannel suit and a hat fromPanama; a tennis racquet leans against his chair. MRS. HOPEcomes quickly through the opening of the wall, with roses in herhands. She is going grey; she wears tan gauntlets, and no hat.Her manner is decided, her voice emphatic, as though aware thatthere is no nonsense in its owner's composition. Screened fromsight, MISS BEECH is seated behind the hollow tree; and JOY isperched on a lower branch hidden by foliage.

She touched skypaw and the energy flowe into her, making skypaw plop on the ground. She looked at the plant. Plant: icetail! Said a melodic voice. My daughter! The plant perked up its leaves(as if it was smiling...) where is whitewing? And has someone killed your traitor of a brother yet?
