A young child walks to school on a hot sunny day along a rough asphalt road.
The child sees a few worms dried-up and not moving on the road.
The child crouches down and stares at them.
The child walks to school wearing a frown.

The young child walks to school the next day and the sun beats down upon the road.
There is grass on both sides of the road and the child sees worms moving in the grass.
The child crouches down and watches how they move.
The child stands up and walks to school wearing a smile.

The young child walks to school the next day and there are waves of heat rising from the road.
There are more dried-up worms on the road than the child has seen before.
The child sees one worm moving in the middle of the road.
The child reaches down and picks it up then drops it in the grass.
The child walks to school laughing out loud.

The young child walks to school the next day and the sun shines brightly
There is a small group of children walking behind the child.
The child sees several worms in the road and picks up a few and drops them in the grass.
The group of children point at the child and they scream and throw rocks at the child.
The child runs to school sobbing out loud.

The young child walks to school the next day and there are no clouds in the sky only the sun.
There are many dried-up worms in the road and many moving worms.
The child briefly glances down at them but walks quickly along the road.
The child arrives at school without a frown or smile.


The young child walks to school the next day and the sky is gray and rain pours down.
There are more worms on the road than the child has ever seen and none that are not moving.
The child laughs and jumps and splashes in the puddles and watches the many moving worms.
The child arrives at school wet with rain and with eyes full of laughter.

The young child walks to school the next day and the sun shines brightly in the sky.
There are no worms on the road and a gentle breeze rustles the grass on both sides.
The child looks up into the blue sky and sees a rainbow full of colors stretching far beyond the horizon.
The young child arrives at school with eyes full of colors.
