Read in January, 2010

Frederick is different than the other mice. Instead of collecting grains, nuts and corn, Frederick always looks as if he is loafing around. His mice friends are not very happy with how little it appears that Frederick is working. Frederick says that he is collecting the suns rays and the colors of summer because winter is long and gray. Winter sets in and all of the stores of food are almost gone. Frederick pulls out his supply of sunshine and colors and restores hope to his friends. Frederick is a poet, and poetry feeds the soul like grains feed the body.
