В саду Калитиных, в большом кусту сирени, жил соловей; его первые вечерние звуки раздавались в промежутках красноречивой речи; первые звезды зажигались на розовом небе над неподвижными верхушками лип.

Куда девалось чувство сострадания, заставлявшее меня, бывало, плакать навзрыд при виде выброшенного из гнезда галчонка или щенка, которого несут, чтобы кинуть за забор, или курицы, которую несет поваренок для супа?
