1934 The Abbof Circle Big Leaves In Andover, Massachusetts, there is a certain alley, bordered by clapboard houses entirely devoid of architecture, which has been nick-named the "Cabbage Patch." Despite its filth and disorder, there is something rather fascinating about this little street. Perhaps I like to walk through it because there are so many children that roll in its dust, that have imaginary regal processions along its cinder length, that sit hunched up like lost mushrooms on stones that were once meant to mark boundaries. There is one house that is larger and more imposing than the rest. It leers down with an ugly grin over a rank growth of weeds. Usually the shade in one of the two windows above the door, is half down, giving the house a malignant expression. Several weird foreign trees grow in the neglected yard. About a week ago I was walking through this alley on my way to school. The morning was chilly, and the sun was reflected by a soft fuzzy coating of frost. A very slight breeze was amusing itself by twirling a few leaves from their insecure position on the branches. It seemed to be having especial fun with a certain tree in the yard of the ugly house. This tree had very large leaves, perhaps eight inches across, which seemed to have been killed by the frost the previous evening, for they drooped from the sinuous branches. The playful antics of this early morning breeze were all that was necessary to send showers of big leaves gliding gracefully to the earth. Three little children, residents of the "Cabbage Patch," were running to and fro, trying to catch the leaves before they touched the ground. Impelled by the spirit of the occasion, I laid down my books and caught a few leaves. The warning voice ofa chapel bell put an end to my caprices and sent me hurrying to school. DELIGIi'l' HALL 67
