    It was December - a bright frozen day in the early morning. Far out in the country there was an old Negro woman with her head tied in a red rag, coming along a 1path through the pinewoods. Her name was Phoenix Jackson. She was very old and small and she walked slowly in the dark pine 2shadows, moving a little 6from side to side in her steps, with the balanced heaviness and lightness of a pendulum in a grandfather clock. She 9carried a thin, small cane made 7from an umbrella, and with this she kept 13tapping the frozen earth in front of her. This 10made a grave and persistent 3noise in the still air, that seemed meditative like the chirping of a solitary little bird.
    She 11wore a dark striped dress reaching down to her shoe tops, and an equally long apron of bleached sugar sacks, with a full pocket: all neat and tidy, but every time she 14took a step she might have fallen over her 4shoelaces 15which dragged 8from her unlaced shoes. She looked straight ahead. Her eyes 12were blue with age. Her 5skin had a pattern all its own of numberless branching wrinkles.
