The Locket. Kate Chopin

The Locket is Chopin′s poignant Civil War story. Modern readers may be tempted to misread the word ′sward′ as ′sword,′ but sward is the word that Chopin used, referring to ′the grassy surface of land; that part of the soil filled with the roots of grass; turf.′
"[The locket] had returned to her sanctified in her eyes; made precious as material things sometimes are by being forever identified with a significant moment of one′s existence."
