Aftermath

A late Spring dawn is just breaking.  Against trees in leaf and blossom, with the houses of a London Square beyond, suffused by the spreading glow, is seen a dark life-size statue on a granite pedestal.  In front is the broad, dust-dim pavement.  The light grows till the central words around the pedestal can be clearly read: 

Erected
To the Memory
of
Stephen more
“Faithful to his ideal”

High above, the face of more looks straight before him with a faint smile.  On one shoulder and on his bare head two sparrows have perched, and from the gardens, behind, comes the twittering and singing of birds.

THE CURTAIN FALLS.
