The Downcast Sun

December 2nd, 2015 · 5 Comments


This picture comes from a Czech children’s book, Pohádky Před Spaním, by Frank Wenig. I don’t read Czech, so I don’t know why the sun is downcast. I like the picture, though. According to an online Czech-English dictionary, the title means Fairy Tales Before Bedtime.

    He starts coming back on the solstice.

    The school of hard knocks-the animals all look worried (or guilty) …. I suppose its “scary sundown” time- something not too comforting to a child before bed like “Goodnight Moon”. But I bet there was some comfort gained when they woke up.

    I guess I’d have to learn Czech to find out why the sun is crying. Poor sun!
