As we huddle in our cozy house, and icy wind lapping at our panes, I find a good moment to finally scan in some summer art. As Frederick says, in the darkest days on Winter:
“Close your eyes,” said Frederick, as he climbed on a big stone.
“Now I send you the rays of the sun. Do you feel how their golden glow…”
And as Frederick spoke of the sun the four little mice began to feel warmer.
Was it Frederick’s voice?
Was it magic?
