On a lonely Irish roadside, a young tinker is bent at work with his hammer beside a fire of sticks. His dark face glows in the light, which sometimes flickers on the chapel gate farther up the lane, and casts into deep shadow the ditch below the hedge, where a handsome girl is hanging up some rags to dry.
