The water was clear and swiftly moving and blue in the channels.
Troops went by the house and down the road and the dust they raised powdered the leaves of the trees.
And afterward the road bare and white except for leaves.
The plain was rich with crops; there were many orchards of fruit trees and beyond the plain the mountains were brown and bare.
And at night we could see the flashes from the artillery.
The mountain that was beyond the valley and the hillside where the chestnut forest grew was captured and there were victories beyond the plain on the plateau to the south
Many thick shady trees in a walled garden.
Now the fighting was in the next mountains beyond and was not a mile away.
The river ran behind us and the town had been captured very handsomely but the mountains beyond it could not be taken
The shell-marked iron of railway bridge,the smashed tunnel by the river where the fighting had been, the trees around the square and the long avenue of trees that led to the square
All these with sudden interiors of houses that had lost a wall through shelling, with plaster and rubble in their garden and sometimes in the street.
You must go on leave at once.
