      > He mounted his horse for a long dusty ride;
      > His book and some quills were tucked close by his side.
      > A long winding ride down a road barely there;
      > Toward the smell of fresh bread wafting up through the air.

      > The woman was tired, with lines on her face;
      > And wisps of brown hair she tucked back into place.
      > She gave him some water ..... as they sat at the table;
      > And she answered his questions ..... the best she was able.
      >
      > He asked of her children ..... Yes, she had quite a few;
      > The oldest was twenty, the youngest not quite two.

      > When the questions were answered, his job there was done;
