You don't have to pay anything--all that sea and sky free--`without money and without price.' There's going to be a moonrise
purty soon, too--I'm never tired of finding out what a moonrise
can be over them rocks and sea and harbor.
"There's a darling moonrise
behind the hills tonight, Marilla, and oh, how the frogs sang me home from Carmody!
I carefully wrapped her in my jacket, and sat down beside her to wait for the moonrise
. The hill-side was quiet and deserted, but from the black of the wood there came now and then a stir of living things.
When we got back, it was after moonrise
: a pony, which we knew to be the surgeon's, was standing at the garden door.
So when it was good and dark I slid out from shore before moonrise
and paddled over to the Illinois bank -- about a quarter of a mile.
