As Rosicky leaves the doctor’s office, he starts home but pauses by the ‘‘snug and homelike’’ graveyard that lies on the edge of his hayfield. It is snowing, and Rosicky remembers that winter means rest for the fields, the animals, and the farmers.
When he reaches home, Rosicky tells Mary that his heart ‘‘ain’t so young.’’ Mary recalls that Rosicky has never treated her harshly in all their years of marriage, which has been successful because they both value the same things. The section ends with a story about how they refused to sell their cream when approached by a creamery company, preferring to give the cream to their own children instead of someone else’s.
