Gear than her delight Yet such am I yea such am I Sore bond and freest free The Law that sways my Lady's ways Is mystery to me To sit still and to keep sitting still is the first lesson that the young jockey must learn Tarvin was learning it in bitterness of spirit For the sake of his town for the sake of his love and above all for the sake of his love's life he must go The town was waiting his horse was saddled at the door but his love would not come He must sit still 4 Copyright 1891 by MacmiUu tc Co The burning desert wind blew through the open verandah as remorselessly as Sitabhai's hate Looking out he saw nothing but the city asl.
