2 Notes

An Easter Greeting, To every child who loved “Alice”

   MY   DEAR   CHILD,

      Please  to  fancy,  if  you  can,  that  you  are  reading  a  real  letter,  from  a  real  friend  whom  you  have  seen,  and  whose  voice  you  can  seem  to  yourself  to  hear,  wishing  you,  as  I  do  now  with  all  my  heart,  a  happy  Easter.

      Do  you  know  that  delicious  dreamy  feeling,  when  one  first  wakes  on  a  summer  morning,  with  the  twitter  of  birds  in  the  air,  and  the  fresh  breeze  coming  in  at  the  open  window—when,  lying  lazily  with  eyes  half  shut,  one  sees   as  in  a  dream  green  boughs  waving,  or  waters  rippling  in  a   golden  light ?   It  is  a  pleasure  very  near  to  sadness,  bringing  tears  to  one’s  eyes  like  a  beautiful  picture  or  poem.   And  is  not  that  a   Mother’s  gentle  hand  that  undraws  your  curtains,  and  a  Mother’s  sweet  voice  that  summons  you  to  rise ?   To  rise  and  forget,  in  the  bright  sunlight,  the  ugly  dreams  that  frightened  you  so  when  all  was  dark—to  rise  and  enjoy  another  happy  day,  first  kneeling  to  thank  that  unseen  Friend  who  sends  you  the  beautiful  sun ?

      Are  these  strange  words  from  a  writer  of  such  tales  as  “Alice” ?   And  is  this  a  strange  letter  to  find  in  a  book  of  nonsense ?   It  may  be  so.   Some  perhaps  may  blame  me  for  thus  mixing  together  things  grave  and  gay ;  others  may  smile  and  think  it  odd  that  any  one  should  speak  of  solemn  things  at  all,  except  in  Church  and  on  a  Sunday :  but  I  think—nay,  I  am  sure—that  some  children  will  read  this  gently  and  lovingly,  and  in  the  spirit  in  which  I  have  written  it.

      For  I  do  not  believe  God  means  us  thus  to  divide  life  into  two  halves—to  wear  a  grave  face  on  Sunday,  and  to  think  it  out-of-place  to  even  so  much  as  mention  Him  on  a  week-day.   Do  you  think  He  cares  to  see  only  kneeling  figures  and  to  hear  only  tones  of  prayer—and  that He  does  not  also  love  to  see  the  lambs  leaping  in  the  sunlight,  and  to  hear  the  merry  voices  of  the  children,  as  they  roll  among  the  hay ?   Surely  their   innocent  laughter  is  as  sweet  in  His  ears  as  the  grandest  anthem  that  ever  rolled  up  from  the  “dim  religious  light”  of  some  solemn  cathedral  ?

      And  if  I  have  written  anything  to  add  to  those  stores  of  innocent  and  healthy  amusement  that  are  laid  up  in  books  for  the  children  I  love  so  well,  it  is  surely  something  I  may  hope  to  look  back  upon  without  shame  and  sorrow  ( as  how  much  of  life  must  then  be  recalled ! )  when  my  turn  comes  to  walk  through  the  valley  of  shadows.

      This  Easter  sun  will  rise  on  you,  dear  child,  “feeling  your  life  in  every  limb,”  and  eager  to  rush  out  into  the  fresh  morning  air—and  many  an  Easter-day  will  come  and  go,  before  it  finds  you  feeble  and  grey-headed,  creeping  wearily  out  to  bask  once  more  in  the  sunlight—but  it  is  good,  even  now,  to  think  sometimes  of  that  great  morning  when  “the  Sun  of  righteousness”  shall  “arise  with  healing  in  his  wings.”

If you had to perform at the circus, what trick would you do?

I would definitely be an aerialist. The way they look up there is so magical, and I would love to be a part of that.

Ask me anything

Hilarious! You all must watch!
