Alvida’s Window for The Magician’s Cape
from Swedish Fairy Tales
by John Bauer.
[Swedish painter and illustrator, 1882-1918]

Alvida did not touch any of the fruit herself.
She let it fall, 
piece by piece,
and tired and thirsty travelers came along, 
picked up a pear or an apple,
and blessed the gift.
