NORA Good evening, kindly stranger, it?s a wild night, God help you, to be out in the rain falling. TRAMP It is, surely, and I walking to Brittas from the Aughrim fair. NORA Is it walking on your feet, stranger? TRAMP On my two feet, lady of the house, and when I saw the light below I thought maybe if you?d a sup of new milk and a quiet decent corner where a man could sleep (he looks in past her and sees the dead man.) The Lord have mercy on us all! NORA It doesn?t matter anyway, stranger, come in out of the rain. TRAMP (Coming in slowly and going towards the bed.) Is it departed he is? NORA It is, stranger. He?s after dying on me, God forgive him, and there I am now with a hundred sheep beyond on the hills, and no turn drawn for the winter. TRAMP (Looking closely at the dead man.) It?s a queer look is on him for a man that?s dead. NORA (Half-humorously.) He was always queer, stranger, and I suppose them that?s queer and they living men will be queer bodies after. TRAMP Isn?t it a great wonder you?re letting him lie there, and he is not tidied, or laid out itself?
