hunches of forget-me-nots. Regretfuny he turned to the valley for a last look,
drawing his eyehrows together in deep concentration as if trying to rememher
this scene forever. Then he turned resolutely toward his goal without looking
hack. He hegan whistling again, as he approached the top of the hill, hut not
as gaily as hefore. With regretfui eyes he walked on tin he had reached the
top, took one more glance at his enchanting valley, and slowly faded from view.
i V NINA VAN DAM
Although they did not speak so 1 could understand,
Their drooping yellow cups in the scented afternoon,
Swaying gently to the touch of some suhtie, rhythmic hand,
Woke a half-rememhered aching in my hreast that even June
Could not ease. .And the streaming liquid light that lay across the Hoor
Sought the Finely threaded veins of their petals, just the same
As rememhrance plucked the strings of my throhhing heart once more,
-And their glowing iridescence lighted deep in me a name
That thought was lost forever in the Caverns of my soul '
And would wander there forgotten like a silent, vanished ghost,
All alone with none to answer to its mute, eternal dole.
But the Howers in their wisdom drove away the foolish hoast,
And I knew, with hopeless misery, the ghost was come again.
Q Godf That huttercups and June should he the givers of such pain!

Theproud cock down on the Vxfiison farm loudly hailed the new day,
and the sun rose reluctantly in the pink, soft sky, like a woman in an her glory
slowly opening her eyes to radiate happiness, laughter, and warmth, of which
the world was so much in need. Tulips stretched their petals towards her in
praise while hirds chirped a warm welcome. How lovely and peaceful it was
in this ioneiy spot, where Howers grew in spite of the fact that a war was
going on, and hirds stin swung gracefully through the air!
Qver the edge of the hill something not yet discernihie was silhouetted
against a rosy sky. As the silhouette took form, one could see a wagon on
four none-too-steady wheels coming slowly down the road which wriggied
its-elf past the neat little cottage in the valley, only to disappear over the low
hills on the other side. Alongside the rickety wagon full of shining milk cans.
a harefooted youth was whistling gaiiy, his hands hidden in faded jeans. He
wore a iight htue shirt of sturdy material, of a quality which descrihed his
nature as wen as his clothes. Though hoth his shirt and jeans were patched in
varying shades of hiue, there was a took of cleanliness ahout him. There was
nothing unusual ahout his iooks: he had an average mouth and nose, and his
height was not extraordinary, yet, when one looked into his eyes one wondered
what thoughts lay hehind them and why his dark hrows were often drawn
together, making him seem oider than he was.
He liked the stillness that surrounded him, a peacefuiness that made him
sigh inwardly with contentment. The sun had now risen fully and the sky had
gradually changed to a deep hiue, with little whisps of cloud hanging life-
Iessiy in the air. A
He was in the valley now, walking past a little cottage dozing in the
warmth. lt, too, was touched with the radiance of the sun like everything else
in the vaitey. A few dewdrops still giistened here and there, giving the whole
scene an ethereal quality. He had stopped whistling for fear of disturhing the
heavenly peace that pervaded him and his surroundings. Walking along at
a hrisk pace, he soon reached the tow hius covered here and there with little

'All around was silence'-the hush of laden Wisteria, smiling magnolias,
the yawn of a sleepy boy. The boy rubbed one dreamy eye and peered around
for a sign of adventure. p
An inviting twitter came from the direction of the Woods. lt was a call'-1
the Piper to Adventure, pushing the Taffy-Head towards the tall pines. the soft
earth, the mirrored pond. Here were the path bordered by round-topped mush-
rooms, lacy ferns of all heights, widths, and sizes, the passing breeze, and the
pungent pine smells-the lcind that never fail to wrinlcle a nose.
I The portly mushrooms seemed to turn to oneanother and Whisper among
themselves. They had a plan, a scheme of ndwness and fantasy loomed with
the intrigue of another world. Farther on the path widened, and small foot-
prints belonging to dwellers of the forest pushed the green grass downward.
Tally looked around and saw nothing but the whispering trees peering down
from aloft. Then the most inviting breeze crossedhis face, and he ambled
towards it, longing to lcnow the secrets behind each tree. All the way little
llowerets sprang up malcing the trail more inviting. Then slowly a pale, win-
some blue appeared and beclconed smilingly. k
Taffy-Head saw clearly that the azure bit was a pond, round, rippling,
and cool to the touch. At its edge grew lacy ferns, drawing water from the
closest ripple, then turning their faces up to greet the, sun,s drifting rays.
Nestling down comfortably on his stomach the boy wriggled his toes, then
pluclced a few spears of grass, threw them into the pond with delighted vigor
trying to malce one outdistance the other.
Beginning curving upward, droplets began to rise from the pond's center,
as it pushed by some yearning force. Smiling ripples formed as if spreading a
carpet for some lovely creature. Then something arose-a Xvoman, apart from
all women. Her shimmering loveliness made Taffy frown and then stretch out
a hand to touch this unreality. She shoolc his hand. Anlcle-length hair graced
her bowing person. The boy withdrew his hand, coclced his head as if to exam-
ine more closely this enchanting Figure. She smiled, wrinlcling her pretty nose
and sat down. Talty glanced anxiously at the grass to see if it was still beneath
him. The Lady nodded, assuring him that the ground was as concrete as ever.
