My mother didn't make it to the city.
She fainted by the road.
Someone saw her
and got word to the mayor.

The mayor and my uncle
brought her home on a cart.

The mayor said that day
my mother's hands were like ice.

She was wrapped in a heavy blanket
on the way home.

But they couldn't get her hands warm.
I don't think it's too serious.
It's a bad chiII, but she is strong.
Mayor, is the teacher coming back?
I don't know the answer.
He shouId have been back by now.
Maybe someone can write to him.
I don't know how to heIp her
if he doesn't come back.

Even one gIimpse of him
wouId be good for her.

''Spring is here.
''It meIts the snow.
''The grass turns green.
''The farmers sow.
''The oxen pIough the fieId.
''The wiId geese return.
''The frogs begin to hop....''
Di, you're awake.
You've been sIeeping for two days.

Di, the teacher is back.
He came back Iast night.
He came straight here.
He sat with you for a Iong time.
Isn't it good news?
