Exercise # 2 on Subordinate Clauses as Delayed Subjects
From A Dog of Flanders by Ouida

1.) But it was with a sad heart that he said it, and the earth did not look so bright to him

2.) All this while the little panel of pine wood remained over the chimney in the 

mill-kitchen with the cuckoo clock and the waxen Calvary, and sometimes it seemed

to Nello a little hard that whilst his gift was accepted he himself should be denied.
