At intervals we passed a wretched cabin, with a thatched roof
, and about it small fields and garden patches in an indifferent state of cultivation.
A thatched roof
that leaked in every heavy shower leaned to a wabbly ridge-pole over the floor.
To be sure, it was a beautiful little cottage with a thatched roof
and little spires at the gable-ends, and pieces of stained glass in some of the windows, almost as large as pocket-books.
It was more than two o'clock in the afternoon when Adam came in sight of the grey town on the hill-side and looked searchingly towards the green valley below, for the first glimpse of the old thatched roof
near the ugly red mill.

Tarzan, from the tree above the village, had marked the hut into which the chief Arabs had gone, and, balancing himself upon an overhanging limb, he drove his heavy spear with all the force of his giant muscles through the thatched roof
. A howl of pain told him that it had found a mark.
A kind of veranda, formed by the thatched roof
, adorned the outside, supported upon wooden pillars, which had some pretensions to being carved.

and had become terribly thin, though still covered with tufts of felty winter hair.

peeped from within this enclosure.
Under the thatched roofs

The farmhouses were my delight, with thatched roofs
, ivy up to the eaves, latticed windows, and stout women with rosy children at the doors.
