On "Girl with a Stick" by Pissarro
In the forest, I poke about in the dirt with a stick. I do not know why mother asked me to wear my hat today, since it is warm, sunny, and cloudless. I find a worm caught on the end of my stick. I shake it back into the dirt. It wriggles off towards the garden. Next I find a root on the end of the stick and accidentally uproot the whole delphinium. Oops. Mother won't be happy, the delphiniums are her favorites. A bee buzzes over and tries to land on my hat. Luckily, it changes its mind and goes for the uprooted delphinium instead. I am beginning to get hot. I decide to go back to the house for something to drink. What fun you can have in a forest.
