Planet-x.com.au » The Social Deconstruct: a couchless living room
We listen to the chiefs in council; we see the unexampled exhibition of female fortitude and resignation; we hear the whisperings of youthful impatience, and we see, what a painter of our own has also represented by his pencil , chilled and shivering childhood, houseless, but for a mother's arms, couchless, but for a mother's breast, till our own blood almost freezes.
In dark doorways lounged these apparently couchless strangers; in areaways and alleys, on doorsteps they found shelter; in the main streets and the side streets they roamed.
And there, too, is "chilled and shivering childhood, houseless but for a mother's arms, couchless but for a mother's breast."
