Words by Katherine Mansfield , a prominent modernist writer of short fiction and poetry.
b Wellington 1888, d Fontainebleau, France 1923


Their heads bent, their legs just touching, they stride like one eager person through the town,
Down the asphalt zigzag where the fennel grows wild ....
The wind is so strong that they have to fight their way through it,
rocking like two old drunkards ....

from ' The Wind Blows '
