death from above North Richmond Street being blind was a quiet street except at the hour when the Christian Brothers School set the boys free An uninhabited house of two storeys stood at the blind end detached from its neighbours in a square ground The other houses of the street conscious of decent lives within them gazed at one another with brown imperturbable faces The former tenant of our house a priest had died in the back drawing-room Air musty from having been long enclosed hung in all the rooms and the waste room behind the kitchen was littered with old useless papers Among these I found a few paper-covered books the pages of which were curled and damp The Abbot by Walter Scott The Devout Communicant and The Memoirs of Vidocq I liked the last best because its leaves were yellow The wild garden behind the house contained a central apple-tree and a few straggling bushes under one of which I found the late tenants rusty bicycle-pump He had been a very charitable priest in his will he had left all his money to institutions and the furniture of his house to his sister When the short days of winter came dusk fell before we had well eaten our dinners When we met in the street the houses had grown sombre The space of sky above us was the colour of ever-changing violet and towards it the lamps of the street lifted their feeble lanterns The cold air stung us and we played till our bodies glowed Our shouts echoed in the silent street The career of our play brought us through the dark muddy lanes behind the houses
