There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.
Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.
Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.
November by Walter de la Mare
"Miss Kaye lingered over pudding, evidently with the intention of allowing the latecomers a few extra minutes, then, rising and saying grace, she announced:
'Linda Marshall and Sylvia Lindsay will come to my study at a quarter to two,' and left the room.
'We're in for it now,' said Linda, clasping Sylvia by the hand as they met in the passage."
to be in for something - to be going to experience something unpleasant very soon
The weather forecast says we're in for heavy rain this evening.
You'll be in for it (= she will be very angry) if you don't do what she tells you. (CALD)
