The lady in the next bed, meadow petticoat and cup of tea.

1. The lady in the next bed -- she has just asked me where I got my skirt, which she says is unusual and beautiful -- asks the nurse if she can have some blusher. "I look so pale, my darling." I hope her family brings her some.

2. An empty office block. A skirt of overgrown grasses and wild flowers.

3. That cup of tea is very welcome on this hot, still afternoon.
