Then around .he corner came a ?mall elderly lorse, driven by a ^mall elderly man sitting atop a small elderly ice wagon shaded by a faded small elder!/ beach umbrella As the little dark sorrel animal and the creaking vehicle passed beneath our window, Frances set the clock and said: "That's the 6 o'clock horse. Haven't you heard him before Se's never more Uian a minute or ;wo i.ff any morning. He makes such a cute sound. And he looks so patient and nice.

But [ overslept, and awokr to hear his hoofbeats already fading away, and sonieiiow after that I never managed to', translate my good intention into a ded.
