    A clear note

    Extracted from Out of Africa by Isak Dinensen

    The author is writing about Lulu - a gazelle with human-like qualities what is living in her house in Africa. It is an elegant diva that has a bit of the devil in her which results in her moods grew beyond control or computation sometimes.

    "One evening Lulu did not come home and we looked out for her in vain for a week. This was a hard blow to us all. A clear note had gone out of the house and it seemed no better than other houses. I thought of the leopards by the river and one evening I talked about them to Kamante.One evening Lulu did not come home and we looked out for her in vain for a week. This was a hard blow to us all.

    Re: A clear note

    Lulu leaving the house was like somebody had stopped playing beautiful music. The house was no longer different or special, it was the same as any other house because Lulu was gone.
